Notes to Editors

 

  • Public hearings resemble a conventional public inquiry, where witnesses give evidence on oath and are subject to questioning by Inquiry counsel.  The Inquiry is selecting investigations from a range of institutions that appear to illustrate a pattern of institutional failings

  • Transcripts will be available on our website after each hearing.

  • Further dates for all hearings into the Inquiry’s investigations will be announced in due course.

  • Information on all preliminary and public hearings will continue to be posted on our website and our Twitter feed @InquiryCSA
