The investigation that he commissioned reviewed all of the relevant documents and evidence. The then Attorney General’s conclusion at the end of that process was that a fresh inquest or inquiry into the death was not warranted. A written statement setting out the detailed reasons for the Attorney’s decision was placed in the House of Commons library in June 2011. That statement was accompanied by a good deal of additional material, including the independent reports that were commissioned.</p><p> </p><p>I am not persuaded there is any reason to re-visit the matter.</p> more like this
