To ask His Majesty's Government how many sub-postmasters wrongly prosecuted by the Post Office have since died without receiving any redress; and how many of their relatives have received full redress.

Tragically, a total of seven wrongfully prosecuted postmasters within the current ‘Overturned Convictions’ cohort have died. Six of these were postmasters whose convictions have been overturned, and one was prosecuted but not convicted. Two of the seven postmasters died after their convictions were overturned. Of these seven claims, four have reached full and final settlement.
