Ed Miliband comments on news 39 postmasters have had their names cleared

Ed Miliband MP, Labour’s Shadow Business Secretary, commenting on the news that 39 postmasters have had their names cleared, said:

“This is a huge victory in the fight for justice for the subpostmasters affected by this appalling decades-long scandal, in the face of inaction from government.

“But there are so many other names to clear. For some who lost their homes and their reputations, it’s too late.

“We’re pushing for a proper Inquiry with teeth to get the bottom of how this scandal can have happened – and who was responsible – to deliver the justice those impacted need and deserve. The Government’s inquiry risks being a whitewash.”
