This chapter concentrates on how the Inquiry went about its tasks of reporting fully, fairly and thoroughly to the Secretary of State. While our central theme will be to emphasise the innovative and investigatory aspects of the Inquiry tactics or working practices, we stress that these elements were built onto and indeed were in a sense an extension of, the more conventional adversarial procedure and legal formalities found in the mainsteam of British public inquiries. These processes have been described in Chapters 2 and 3.
