Savile Inquiry And Verita

EDM number 895 in 2014-15, proposed by John Hemming on 18/03/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Companies, Crime, Health services, Sexual offences and Standards.

That this House notes that Verita were responsible for centrally editing the reports from individual hospitals as part of the Savile Inquiry; further notes that Verita state on their website that We are renowned for our thoroughness and commitment to producing evidence-based reports that can withstand rigorous challenge; recognises that this is a commitment to a public relations objective rather than an objective of getting to the truth; further notes that there are concerns that Verita has been involved in at least one cover up previously; and believes, therefore, that the details of and edits made by Verita to individual hospital inquiry reports should be made public.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
