British Library finally issues receipt for from Hillsborough to Lambeth
Following a Freedom of Information Act request, a receipt has finally been issued by the British Library Legal Deposit Office for the book from Hillsborough to Lambeth two years after first receiving the controversial book for which Brian Pead – but not Michael Bird – endured a prison sentence for alleged contempt of court.
Dated the 05 January 2015, the Receipt was not received by authors Brian Pead and Michael Bird until 23 February 2015.
It is a legal requirement that all books published in England are deposited at the British Library. The book is now part of the nation’s heritage and a record of whistle-blowing in Lambeth Council.
