Response from Home Office

One of our supporters has kindly allowed us to publish the response from the HomeOffice that he received to his letter.

Dear Mr Xxxxxx,

Thank you for your e-mail of 17 May to the Home Secretary about South Yorkshire Police’s handling of events at the Orgreave coking plant in June 1984.  I have been asked to reply on her behalf.

The Home Secretary is currently considering a legal submission received from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign on 15 December 2015 containing their arguments for establishing a public inquiry into those events.  The Home Secretary will therefore set out the Government’s position in the near future.

Please use the draft letter from the blog and write to the Home Secretary.
