Debate Thank You

On behalf of the Shrewsbury 24 Campaign we would like to thank Steve Rotheram MP and the Shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham MP for presenting the case for the release of all documents appertaining to the Shrewsbury Trials at the recent debate in Westminster Hall.

Labour MP Steve Rotheram and Shadow Home Secretary Andy Burnham lead a comprehensive debate in Westminster Hall on Wednesday 9th December. The two MP’s spoke passionately on behalf of our campaign requesting the government to release all the files relating to the charges, trials, and convictions of the the Shrewsbury Pickets in 1973/4.

The debate was called in response to Oliver Letwin MP’s announcement that the cabinet have reviewed the withheld documents and decided not to release them to the national archives at Kew for public scrutiny. The next scheduled review will be in 2021.
