Paul Foot

EDM number 581 in 1996-97, proposed by Peter Bottomley on 25/02/1997.

That this House notes the quotation by Paul Foot in the Press Gazette of 21st February that 'Justice can work both ways and sometimes journalists may have to intervene. Usually we fail. It is very rare that we actually succeed'; and congratulates him for a persistent, courageous campaign over the Bridgewater Four case, recognising that many will share insights into the reasons for an unsound conviction after pioneering and lonely work by a smaller number over the years.

This motion has been signed by a total of 33 MPs, 2 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
