Today's House of Lords debate - discusses the case of Aberfan

Please see the link below regarding today's Lords debate, where by the case of Aberfan was mentioned by Stewart Wood (former fellow of Magdalen and Visiting Fellow of Nuffield) and by Michael Wills in his closing speech. This is the first of an increasing number of discussions of Aberfan we expect to see in 2016, as the 50th anniversary of the disaster approaches in October. Iain McLean and his former research officer Martin Johnes (now at Swansea University) briefed Lord Wood extensively before his speech. http://www.parliament.uk/business/publications/hansard/lords/todays-lords-debates/read/unknown/16/ ​​
