Statement from the three party leaders at Birmingham City Council: Cllr John Clancy, Cllr Robert Alden and Cllr Jon Hunt.
“The horrific events of 21 November 1974 cast a long shadow in Birmingham as our city came under attack. The victims of the bombings were sons and daughters of our city and our region, tragically cut down on that horrific night.
“As a mark of respect we are now beginning the process of posthumously awarding the Freedom of the City to the 21 innocent victims of the bombings at the Mulberry Bush and the Tavern in the Town. They will never be forgotten.”
