Terms of Reference

The Terms of Reference set out the areas to be considered by the Inquiry.

The Terms of Reference were drafted following a comprehensive consultation that received almost 700 responses. A summary of the consultation responses sets out what respondents told us.

The Chair of the Inquiry wrote to the Minister of the Cabinet Office on 7 June setting out his recommendation for the Inquiry’s Terms of Reference and ways of working. Copies of the Chair’s letter to the Minister and the Minister’s response accepting his recommendations have been published.

The Chair also wrote to people who have been infected and affected to explain what is happening now that the Inquiry is formally underway. His letter was sent on 2 July. A Welsh language version is available.
