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

I will read it out verbatim:

"Edward has agreed to provide this evidence to the Inquiry, on request, solely for the assistance of the inquiry, and because the incident occurred whilst the Inquiry was underway. Edward and his family are not public figures, but have through personal tragedy been caught up in a public event. The Bowles family have not made and will not be making any public statement to the media in relation to these matters. Their agreement to provide this evidence to the Inquiry in no way should be taken as waiving their right to privacy or their desire to be left alone by the media to continue to grieve over their son's tragic and untimely death."

Is there anything, Mr Crown, you would like to add to that final paragraph?
