Ha THis is a joke and you know what the commander said was untrue but you don't want to give me leagl aid to prepare a statement and want me to response in the aftermath of you making Judgements that clearly would now need my input. Oh I hope the public hate you.

Dear Ms Moss

Thank you for your email.

If you wish to set out your response to Commander Jerome's evidence to the Inquiry in a witness statement, it is not necessary to have it "taken down" by a solicitor.  However, you may wish to seek legal advice and assistance if you do wish to submit a statement to the Inquiry.  

The Inquiry is not bound by the Civil Procedure Rules - it instead proceedings in accordance with the Inquiries Act 2005 and Inquiry Rules 2006.  Under Rule 9 of the Inquiry Rules, the Inquiry may make a written request for further evidence, being either a written statement or oral evidence.  Any request for a written statement must include a description of the matters or issues to be covered in the statement. 

However, I wanted to be clear that the Inquiry is not formally requesting a statement from you, hence why we have not formally requested a statement from you setting out specific 'criteria or particulars'; you are simply invited to provide a statement setting out your response to Commander Jerome's evidence if you wish to do so.

There are certain circumstances in which legal funding may be provided by the Inquiry in relation to preparing a witness statement.  However, as the Inquiry has not requested a statement from you, I consider it unlikely that Chair would make an award for legal expenses funding in these circumstances.

Kind regards

Martin Smith
Solicitor to the Inquiry
