That this House notes the Ministerial Written Statement HCWS109, made on 6 September 2017; welcomes the extended deadline for views on the format and scope of the independent inquiry; thanks Bishop James Jones, former Chair of the Hillsborough Independent Panel and Chair of the Gosport Independent Panel for his voluntary help; further notes confirmation that the Government is considering whether and how to transfer sponsorship of the Inquiry to a government department or office instead of the Department of Health; believes such a move to be justified and appropriate; and expects the Inquiry to be judge-led with the 2005 Act powers.
