The death of Dr. David Kelly - Motion in the Scottish Parliament

Readers might be interested to be aware of the following motion S3M-6819 in the Scottish Parliament.

The following is the most recent text of the motion that I can locate. It seems to differ from the original motion in that Jamie Hepburn MSP has given his support to the motion.

S3M-6819 Christina McKelvie: Inquest into the Circumstances of the Death of Dr David Kelly—That the Parliament supports the call from a group of prominent medical experts and a cross party group of politicians for a full inquest into the circumstances surrounding the death of Dr David Kelly; notes the calls come from a former coroner, Michael Powers, and Julian Bion a professor of intensive care medicine, and that there is political support from Labour leadership contender Diane Abbot MP, Conservative peer Michael Howard, two former Labour defence ministers and a number of Conservative, Liberal Democrat and Labour MPs; further supports calls that the proposed inquest includes disclosure of all documents sealed for 70 years in respect of evidence to the Hutton inquiry, and further notes that recent evidence by the first police officer on the scene, together with new statements by doctors, raises serious questions which should be considered by the inquest.

Supported by: Bill Wilson, Robin Harper, Rob Gibson, Bill Kidd, Stuart McMillan, Aileen Campbell, Gil Paterson, Sandra White, Christopher Harvie, Jamie Hepburn
