Amber Rudd Branded A ‘Disgrace’ In Commons As Tories Reject Orgreave Inquiry

In a written statement announcing her decision today, Rudd said: “Despite the forceful accounts and arguments provided by the campaigners and former miners who were present that day, about the effect that these events have had on them, ultimately there were no deaths or wrongful convictions.

“There have been very significant changes in the oversight of policing since 1984, at every level, including major reforms to criminal procedure, changes to public order policing and practice, stronger external scrutiny and greater local accountability.

“There would therefore be very few lessons for the policing system today to be learned from any review of the events and practices of three decades ago.”
