"As families bereaved by Covid-19, we’re campaigning for lessons to be learned as quickly as possible in order to save lives as the virus spikes again around the country "

"The Government has agreed to order an Inquiry down the line, and that’s the right thing to do. But to get real answers we absolutely need an independent and judge-led Statutory Public Inquiry – where the Government doesn’t get to mark its own homework"

"Every day the government fails to learn lessons, more families are going through the same loss and trauma"

"We must hold the government accountable and act to save lives"

"We have sent a final pre-action letter to the Government informing them that if they don’t take action to initiate a statutory Public Inquiry we will begin legal proceedings to try to secure one"

This is another campaign to try to use the justice system to persuade the government to set up an urgent and, many would say, much-needed "judge-led" enquiry into the government's handling of the pandemic.

Already the Simon Dolan case has been refused permission to proceed and the Robin Tilbrook case is in the final throes of probable rejection, so it's unclear why this case should enjoy success any time soon. Still, it's a worthy cause and "every little helps".
