Hillsborough Law will require public bodies to tell the truth and will ensure parity of funding for bereaved families after state related deaths with the public bodies involved like the police, NHS Trusts and local authorities: see www.thehillsboroughlaw.com
The investigation of state related deaths is characterised by an institutionalised culture of delay, denial and defensiveness. Public bodies routinely cover up their wrongdoing using taxpayers' money. There is concern that this is already happening again with Grenfell with authorities and private entities denying responsibility before the fire was even out. We need to stop this and make it a legal duty to tell the truth and proactively cooperate with investigations and inquiries.
Hillsborough Law has the support of MP's from all parties but the Government is doing nothing about enacting it; we need a petition calling for a debate in Parliament and we need a campaigner to lobby for the law to be brought before parliament. INQUEST, a charity providing expertise on state-related deaths and supporting bereaved families, will take on a campaigner if we raise enough money. All money raised will go to INQUEST and their work alongside families searching for truth,justice and accountability. See www.inquest.org.uk
