The Prime Minister, the Secretary of State for the Home Department, Mrs May, and I agree on the need to provide full transparency about the Hillsborough disaster through full public disclosure. All the Cabinet Office papers have been shared with the Hillsborough Independent Panel and the Government are happy for all the papers to be released as soon as the panel so decides, in consultation with the families. The Prime Minister, Home Secretary and I expect them to be shared with the Hillsborough families first and then with the wider public.
