Valerie asks for documents to be released on The Golden Temple

Valerie asked the Leader of the House of Commons about events in 1984 at the Golden Temple on Thursday 16th January 2014.

Valerie said:

“Any attack on a place of worship must be condemned so, on behalf of my constituents and those of other Members, may I ask that all the documents in respect of what happened at Amritsar in 1984 that are in the custody and control of the Government are released so that we have full transparency?”

The Leader of the House replied:

“Without wishing to repeat myself, let me say that I completely understand and share the concern the hon. Lady raises, but I urge Members not to prejudge the circumstances then until we know more.”
