“There seems to me to be complete agreement on the need for full and public disclosure, initially to the families.”
Relatives will be shown the documents first before they are made available to all.
The news was welcomed by Margaret Aspinall, chairman of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. She said: “It’s important that we get these Cabinet minutes. You can’t have the whole truth of Hillsborough without them and we’ve been shouting to have them released for 22 years.
“We hope all documents will be released with no censorship.”
Full disclosure of the documents will be debated by MPs in the Commons today.
