|Campaigning to pardon Alan Turing with John and Cllr James Hennigan at Manchester Pride 2012|
John will now propose the bill be given a second reading in the House of Commons on the 29th of November.
John Leech said today,
“Alan Turing was a hero to me and lots of people. I am glad that the bill to pardon him is closer to becoming law. It has passed the Lords with cross party support, and I hope that we will see the same in the Commons.”
And John praised Lord John Sharkey, who ably guided the bill through the Lords,
“John has done a great job steering this through the Lords. I hope that the Commons follows suit as soon as possible.”
