Guildford Four

EDM number 2042 in 1992-93, proposed by Jeremy Corbyn on 19/05/1993.

That this House is deeply concerned at the attempts of the establishment to re-convict the Guildford Four; records that the four, Paul Hill, Gerry Conlon, Patrick Armstrong and Carole Richardson spent fourteen years in prison for a crime they did not commit on convictions based only on uncorroborated confessions; notes that the Surrey officers acquitted by the court offered no defence thus preventing challenge to the assertions of their counsel and that their prosecution effectively stopped the May Inquiry proceeding due to the sub judice rule; and calls for a public examination of all the police actions surrounding the Guildford confessions and an explanation from the Surrey police of their activities at that time.

This motion has been signed by a total of 33 MPs.
