The chairman of the Independent Panel looking into the Hillsborough tragedy has called for investigations into "systems as well as people".
The Bishop of Liverpool, the Rt Rev James Jones, said it "needed to be addressed" that police and coroners' records do not come under the provisions of the Public Records Act.
A series of reviews have been ordered into the actions of police officers involved in the Hillsborough inquiry following the disaster in April 1989 which claimed the lives of 96 Liverpool supporters.
The Bishop said there was "not a family in Liverpool" which has not been affected by the disaster.
Because these are not covered by the Public Records Act it means that they can't be brought into the public domain in the way that other public records are.
I don't want to minimise people's responsibility but we also need to look at the systems as well.
I hope that the legacy of the panel's work will be justice and that the 96 will be able to rest in peace," he added.
I pray too that as we experience justice for those we love, we as a city might champion justice for others in the world today.
The Attorney General is expected to apply to have the original verdicts in the inquest into the deaths of 93 fans at Hillsborough quashed.
Representatives of the Hillsborough victims' families will meet with the Home Affairs Committee to discuss what action needs to be taken.
Families of those who died at Hillsborough have been giving their reaction to the announcements by the DPP today.
