Justice Secretary Chris Grayling says the Government is "very mindful" of the financial pressures faced by the Hillsborough families should judges sitting at the High Court tomorrow decide to order fresh inquests into the deaths of the 96 victims.
Mr Grayling said the Government was taking into consideration the families after Labour MP Steve Rotheram asked whether ministers would offer financial support should the High Court decide to quash the original inquest verdicts and order new investigations.
Attorney General Dominic Grieve is expected at the High Court tomorrow to ask for senior judges to quash the accidental death verdicts following the original inquests into the deaths of the 96 Liverpool fans.
New inquests may be ordered and Mr Rotheram, the MP for Liverpool Walton, said he was concerned the families of the victims of the 1989 disaster may not have the finances to support their legal cases.
