Hillsborough debate delay criticised by Andy Burnham

Help

Andy Burnham criticised Tory MP Christopher Chope who used parliamentary procedure to try and block a debate on the 1989 Hillsborough stadium disaster where 96 Liverpool FC fans died.

Transport Secretary Philip Hammond said Mr Chope was a "maverick" and David Cameron said MPs would get an opportunity to debate the issue after more than 100,000 people signed a petition urging the move.

The campaign was raised during PMQs by Labour MP Steve Rotheram.
