Witness update

Following Lesley Roberts’ announcement on social media yesterday (16 May 2024) that she no longer intends to give evidence at the Scottish COVID-19 Inquiry, its Chair, Lord Brailsford, has withdrawn his invitation to her to appear at a public hearing.

The independent Inquiry has always been keen to receive evidence from Lesley Roberts relevant to its Terms of Reference and will ensure the signed written statements she has provided will inform its investigations.
