Relatives will see Saville report before its published

Relatives of those killed on Bloody Sunday in Derry in 1972 have welcomed a decision by the Parliamentary authorities to allow two members from each family to read the report of the Saville inquiry before the findings are published.

They say they are relieved there has been a change of heart after pressure from them to increase the number of relatives allowed at the pre-read stage.

Families were informed of the decision by Northern Ireland Secretary Shaun Woodward that the Speaker of the British Parliament has agreed to up to two people per family getting access to the report on the day of publication.
