Responding, Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds MS said:
“This backroom deal between the Conservatives and Welsh Labour means that those most impacted, the bereaved families, haven’t even been consulted on this plan.
“Worst of all this now means instead of being an independent inquiry this issue will come before the Senedd, which will inevitably lead to the politicisation of the discussion, which is exactly what we need to avoid.
“The Welsh Liberal Democrats will continue to push for an independent inquiry free from any political interference because it is what bereaved families in Wales deserve and what is right for the Country in terms of ensuring lessons are learnt for the future.”
