Mark Durkan’s contribution to the Hillsborough debate-

21 10 2011

SDLP Foyle MP Mark Durkan has spoken of his support for the families of the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.

Speaking during a debate about the tragedy in the House of Commons, Mark Durkan said:
“This campaign touches everyone who seeks justice. A group of my constituents have a particular sense of empathy and solidarity with the families of the 96—the Bloody Sunday families, who have developed a very strong bond with those families.

“In a different way, they can empathise with exactly what families suffer whenever they have to struggle against indifference, injustice and insult and whenever survivors have to endure calumny and are asked by the powers that be, in the media and elsewhere, to carry some of the blame of that day.

“This issue touches many people, and the families of the 96 have all our hearts”
