Notes on Costs
As the Inquiry is independent of Scottish Government, it has to be set up from scratch. Costs involved with setting up and running an inquiry include staffing and infrastructure such as IT systems, equipment, premises, and the legal team required for the process.
Future expenses will include funding awards and witness costs. For more information on these costs please see our Statement of Intent on funding.
