Home Of­fice must ‘step up’

Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

HOME AF­FAIRS se­lect com­mit­tee chair­man Yvette Cooper has called on the Home Of­fice to “step up” and sup­port the pub­li­ca­tion of pa­pers con­cern­ing the Bat­tle of Or­g­reave.

The Nor­man­ton MP, who has been push­ing for a full pub­lic in­quiry into the cir­cum­stances of the clash in 1984, said: “I wel­come Dr Alan Billings’ work both to sup­port the need for an in­quiry and to work to en­sure any files are prop­erly re­viewed and made pub­lic too as part of an in­de­pen­dent process.

“It is vi­tal that the Home Of­fice steps up and sup­ports pro­cesses to re­view and pub­lish Or­g­reave pa­pers.”
