17th October 2011

A Hillsborough Independent Panel spokesman said:

“The Hillsborough Independent Panel notes the significance of the Parliamentary debate regarding the release of Cabinet papers. It reaffirms its independent role in securing access to, and maximum public disclosure of, all documents relating to the context, circumstances and aftermath of the disaster. Consistent with its Terms of Reference, it will analyse disclosed documents, publish a full report on how they ‘contribute to public understanding’ of the disaster and its consequences and it will prepare options for the establishment of a comprehensive archive of all documents released”.
