The father of missing York chef Claudia Lawrence has been to the House of Commons for the second reading of the Government's Presumption of Death Bill. It will make it easier for relatives to deal with the affairs of financial and legal issues of their missing loved ones.
Claudia disappeared in 2009. Her father, Peter says he is disappointed that there is currently no provision for Guardianship in the Bill and hopes that this will be re-considered.
