JLC Statement on Baroness Royall Summary Report Being Published

We would like to express our appreciation to Baroness Royall for her efforts. However, we regard the exercise as incomplete until the release of the full inquiry and are disappointed with the NEC's decision to suppress it. Organisations that do not publish full reports tend to lose legitimacy in the eyes of the general public, as was the case when the media were rightly critical when FIFA tried to publish a very sanitised version into the World Cup bidding procedure. We expect the publication of the full Royall report along with the Chakrabarti Inquiry. We will continue to support our colleagues in the community with their submissions to the Chakrabarti Inquiry.
