The Home Secretary has received letters from the families of the victims of the 1974 Birmingham pub bombings and lawyers representing them, requesting a special scheme be set up for funding of the families’ legal representation at the newly opened Coroner’s inquest into the bombings, and a meeting to discuss this. The Government is carefully considering these requests, and will respond in due course.
