Following the announcement on behalf of the Cabinet Office, the deadline for the consultation about the study’s terms of reference has been extended until 9 August, to allow the recognised legal representatives (RLRs) of infected and affected core participants to provide submissions.
The RLRs will be asked to make their submissions about draft terms of reference which will be based on the responses to the consultation received so far, and provided to the RLRs on 26 July.
Due to the wholly exceptional nature of this issue, limited funding will be made available to each firm for the purposes of completing this piece of work on the consultation. Sir Robert will consider responses to the consultation before submitting his proposals to the Paymaster General for decision.
The terms of reference will be published shortly afterwards.
Written comments and submissions should be sent to Sir Robert by email:
