Labour calls for urgent investigation into lost Government files – Jon Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Shadow Cabinet Office Minister, commenting on reports that almost a thousand Government files detailing some of the most controversial episodes in 20th-century British history have vanished after the Government removed them from the country’s National Archives and then reported them as lost, said:

“The loss of documents about controversial periods in history is unacceptable.

"The British people deserve to know what the Government has done in their name and their loss will only fuel accusations of a cover-up.

"These important historical documents may be a great loss to history – and their disappearance must urgently be investigated.”
