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

Thank you.

It is obviously very important that when I report, and the exercise of this Inquiry will come to an end, as I'm sure at some stage so will your operations, it has the benefit of absolutely up-to-date information.

Of course, I am not concerned about individuals at this stage, I am merely concerned with what's gone on in the past and what I might derive from that as to culture, practice and ethics, and what impact that might have on the future. But in order that I am absolutely up-to-date as far as is possible, I would be grateful if you would be prepared to return in the autumn so that I know what the position is -- it's obviously fast-moving -- and in that way at least can give those who read my report the benefit of what that up-to-date position is. I hope that won't cause you too much inconvenience.
