Although the Department was not called to provide witnesses to the Penrose Inquiry, we cooperated fully with Lord Penrose’s requests for documentary evidence, and the Departmental evidence that Lord Penrose used is referenced in his final report. Lord Penrose published the report of his public inquiry into infections acquired in Scotland on 25 March 2015. Nothing was withheld.
