Part 21: Volume 2 conclusions and recommendations

There are three sections to Part 21. The first section will set out my overall conclusions. These are drawn from across Volume 2. The second section will list my Recommendations. The third will identify my approach to monitoring the progress of particular Recommendations I make in Volume 2 (Monitored Recommendations).

The Monitored Recommendations are all in areas where substantial progress can be made during the period I have set for monitoring them.

The fact that I have not listed a Recommendation as a Monitored Recommendation does not mean that it should not be the subject of prompt attention. There is a great deal of work that needs to be done to address the issues I have identified, which include systemic issues. All those with a responsibility to keep the public safe need to address areas for improvement as a matter of urgency.
