Public inquiries are independent investigations, established in response to public concern about a particular event or set of events
An inquiry typically sets out to establish:
What happened, and why?
What decisions went wrong, and what went right?
What lessons can be learnt to prevent a recurrence of any adverse impacts from these events?
The inquiry was formally opened on 20th July 2022 by the Chair, Baroness Heather Hallett, a former Court of Appeal Judge. Baroness Hallett is highly experienced in this area and has previously led the inquest into the 7/7 London bombings and ‘On the runs’ inquiry.
