Adjournment Debate on Deaths in Custody – Tuesday 4 February


Earlier this week I secured an adjournment debate in Parliament to discuss Legal Aid for the families of those found dead in police custody.


It appears to be usual practice that the families of those who have died whilst in police custody are required to make a financial contribution to the costs of the Inquest into their relative’s death.


In modern Britain this is an affront to justice.


- You can find the official copy of my speech to the House of Commons here.

- The Birmingham Mail did a piece on my adjournment debate which you can access here.

- The brilliant charity Inquest, which provides support to those bereaved families facing an inquest, are an invaluable source of expertise and assistance on this issue. You can access their website here.
