I'm grateful to the Counsel General for his response. Counsel General, I've raised a number of times the concerns I have for this Bill, in that it does not go anywhere near far enough to meet the asks of the Hillsborough Law Now campaign. This Bill is seriously lacking in key areas, such as a duty of candour. Victims who cannot be assured of getting the full truth at the first time of asking are unlikely to attain the justice they deserve. What are the Welsh Government's options to try and encourage the UK Government for a rethink of this Bill?
