Call on Sajid Javid to include role of race, religion and social class in Grenfell inquiry
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
Notes from the inquiry show that Imran Khan QC says the terms of reference for the Grenfell Inquiry do not include race, religion and social class and require amendment.
He has urged Martin Moore-Bick to recommend to the home secretary (the only one who can change the terms) a change to the terms of reference to examine whether race, religion and social class played any part in the events surrounding the fire on 14 June last year.
This would follow in the footsteps of the MacPherson inquiry into Stephen’s Lawrence's death in addressing the issue.
Reading of Martin Moore-Bick's 10 August 2017 letter to the prime minister suggest that he believes that social, political and economic questions should be raised by 'a different kind of process or body...[which] could operate in parallel with the Inquiry'. Moore-Bick acknowledges that these are 'serious questions which require urgent examination' yet, the government is yet to include these important points in any formal Inquiry.
This could take place in phase 2 of the inquiry. Phase 1 is in progress so there is still time but this is urgent. Now is the time to make your voice heard alongside the bereaved, survivors and relatives.
Please add your voice to this call and sign and share this petition. We need 100,000 signatures to credibly begin this conversation with government.
