The government has confirmed that Cabinet papers relating to the Hillsborough Disaster will be made public.

An online petition, started by This Is Anfield’s Brian Irvine, saw over 100,000 signatures including the likes of Kenny Dalglish, Michael Owen and Joey Barton. This triggered debate in the House of Commons.

A statement from the Cabinet Office reads, “The government has confirmed its commitment to full transparency about the Hillsborough disaster through full public disclosure.

“All papers had previously been shared with the Hillsborough Independent Panel.

“The government is happy for all the papers to be released as soon as the panel so decides, in consultation with the families.

“We expect them to be shared with the Hillsborough families first and then to the wider public.”

Another step forward in the fight for justice.
