Labour Will Overturn Tories' Disgraceful Decision To Deny An Orgreave Inquiry

There was widespread disbelief and anger on the Opposition benches following the announcement... This denial of truth and justice cannot stand. The OTJC will not simply go away. Trade unionists, the labour movement, and all those who believe the state should not be above the law will continue this fight. And Labour in Government will grant a full public Inquiry on day one in office.

Even if no mistakes were made, without external scrutiny many will not believe that to be the case. This means that errors or corruption cannot be addressed and that honest officers cannot be validated.
