The family of Cheryl James say they are relieved at the Attorney General's decision to allow them permission to apply for a fresh inquest into the death of their daughter.
Pte James was one of four soldiers who died at Deepcut barracks in Surrey between 1995 and 2002.
We're relieved and delighted by the Attorney General's decision.
It's truly an emotional day - it's been a long and painful process, with so many hurdles, but we never considered giving up.
Cheryl had her whole life in front of her; when our young people lose their lives serving their country, not only do they deserve a full and independent investigation into their deaths, it must be their absolute right.
We may now finally achieve a meaningful inquiry into her death and we hope it brings about real change for future recruits.
Private James' parents, backed by Human Rights campaign group Liberty, called for a fresh inquest into her death, lodging an application with the Attorney General for consent to apply to the High Court for one.
Today a spokesman for Dominic Grieve said he had granted his consent.
The spokesman said:
The application was made to the Attorney General on the basis that the original inquest made insufficient enquiry into the circumstances of her death and because new evidence is now available that was not put before the inquest in December 1995.
The Attorney General granted his consent because he concluded that it was in the interests of justice for the application for a new inquest to go forward and to be heard by the High Court.
The mother of Andrew Young, who was killed by Lewis Gill earlier this year, said she is "relieved" by a decision today to refer Gill's four-and-a-half-year sentence to the Court of Appeal for being unduly lenient.
“I am hoping that the sentence will be extended so that somebody will have a chance to get through to him [Gill], appeal to his heart and mind, and show him the error of his ways”, she told the Dorset Echo.
Lewis Gill, who killed Asperger's sufferer Andrew Young with a single punch in Bournemouth earlier this year, is to see his four-and-a-half-year jail sentence for manslaughter referred to the Court of Appeal for being unduly lenient, the Attorney General's Office said today.
