A Hillsborough Independent Panel spokesman said:

"In keeping with the key principle of full public disclosure, the Hillsborough Independent Panel welcomes the government's commitment to publish all relevant documents to the panel. The response to the petition shows the strength of public feeling about the Hillsborough disaster and reinforces the importance of the panel's work and its commitment to full disclosure.

"The panel is accessing and researching hundreds of thousands of documents and other materials relating to the context, circumstances and aftermath of the disaster. It will publish a comprehensive, independent and analytical report and establish a public archive. It is the intention of the Panel to publish all documents simultaneously.

"The Panel is grateful for the continuing support of the Hillsborough families in taking forward its unique and important work."
