The Legacy Report Parliament 2010-15

Inquiry status: concluded

The House of Commons, Science and Technology Committee has published 29 reports on a variety of issues since it was formed after the 2010 General Election and received responses from eleven different Government departments.  In this final session of the Parliament, the Committee intends to revisit those issues and follow-up on its recommendations within those reports.

The Committee will be writing to as many of its former witnesses as it can to seek comment on the reports and Government responses to the Committee recommendations.  Comment is not restricted to former witnesses and any comment on the reports, or responses, may be submitted as evidence to the Committee in the usual way.
