Email contacts

Recently, a couple of people have sent in enquiries through our website giving email addresses that failed when we responded. This has meant that we have not been able to successfully send a reply. If you have contacted us and not received a reply, please get in touch again. We have amended the website so it now requires email addresses to be provided twice in order to check for accuracy.

Final Report

On behalf of Lord Penrose, I am able to advise that the first batch of warning letters arising from the Final Report has been issued. It is expected that there will be two further batches. Another progress report will be issued at the end of May 2014 when, subject to the warning letters process being complete, Lord Penrose expects to be in a position to announce a publication date for the Final Report.
