9780199287772: Public Inquiries

The tradition of public inquiry has become a pivotal part of public life, and a major instrument of accountability in the United Kingdom. There have been over 20 significant public inquiries in the past 10 years alone (including the Stephen Lawrence, the Foot and Mouth, the Bloody Sunday, the Hutton and the Mubarek Inquiries). This book is written and edited by practitioners who have appeared in a large number of these significant inquiries. This new work is the first of its kind, and is a useful handbook for practitioners.

The work examines and explains both statutory (in particular the Inquiries Act 2005 and the Inquiry Rules 2006) and non-statutory inquiries in chapters relating to the need for and purpose of the public inquiry, the mechanisms for establishing a public inquiry, terms of reference, the subject matter of inquiries, the relationship of inquiries with other legal proceedings, the constitution of an inquiry, the administration of an inquiry, evidence and procedure, public access to an inquiry, immunities and defamation, representation and funding, inquiry reports and the duty to be fair, ending the inquiry and challenging an inquiry. This book is fully indexed and cross-referenced, including extensive referencing to the position in other jurisdictions.
