Pub bombings: Prime Minister Theresa May supports families' legal aid bid
Prime Minister Theresa May says there is a “strong case” for families of the Birmingham pub bombing victims to get financial support, to ensure they are represented at crucial inquests later this year.
And she told the Birmingham Mail the Government supports the families’ bid to the Legal Aid Agency, which will make a decision about funding.
Mrs May was speaking as the Conservatives gathered in the city for the annual conference, at the ICC in Broad Street.
Fresh inquests are to be held into the deaths of 21 people in the Birmingham pub bombings on November 21 1974.
