The transcripts of the official inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the press. More…

Thank you. I am going to summarise the first three paragraphs of your statement just so that we have an understanding of who you are and why it is that you are here giving evidence to the inquiry. You explain at paragraph 1 that you are a partner in the law firm Lewis Silkin and you are head of media brands and technology department, and that you are here making this statement on behalf of Edward Bowles.

You make clear that where facts are not within your own knowledge, you have stated the source of your belief, ie from Mr Bowles unless otherwise stated. You are a friend of Edward Bowles and you explain how you met, and you explain that you have been assisting Edward and his family in relation to the matters which we are going to discuss in evidence today --
