The Administrative and Public Law team hosted a Policy Matters webinar on public inquiries on Thursday 10 September 2020. Hosted by Associate Sahil Kher, the webinar featured insights from Andrew Lidbetter (the head of HSF’s Administrative and Public Law practice in London) and Nusrat Zar, who is also a partner in the team. Andrew and Nusrat both have considerable expertise of advising clients involved in public inquiries and select committee inquiries.
Some of the key issues covered on the webinar included:
- The common features of different types of inquiries;
- What it means to be a participant in an Inquiry;
- Practical and commercial considerations including how a participant can deal with any potential criticism; and
- The prospect of an inquiry into the UK Government’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis, and the wide range of commercial organisations who may be involved.
A recorded version of this webinar is now available here.
