Implementing the decision to clear the Horizon victims

 As reported here last night, yesterday the PM and post office minister Kevin Hollingrake  announced our plan to quash the wrongful convictions of the brave victims of the Horizon scandal, giving postmasters the justice they deserve.

  • We will act at speed to bring forward legislation to quash all convictions that were based on this miscarriage of justice. We will also introduce an upfront compensation offer to recognise the vital role of the group of the 555 postmasters and consult on speeding up access to compensation.
  • Our plan will clear people’s names, deliver justice and ensure swifter access to compensation for innocent people who have waited too long, as we work to ensure that such a tragedy can never happen again.
