Inquiry Update January 2021


In light of this week’s announcements on further lockdowns and restrictions Sir John Saunders, Chairman of the Manchester Arena Inquiry, has had to consider the impact on the Inquiry’s oral hearings.

He has decided to pause the hearings until 18 January to give the Inquiry time to consider its options which could include the use of virtual hearings and very restricted attendance in person hearings.
