The short answer to that question is yes. Claire Baker will be aware that there will, of course, be other interested parties. I have not received a request from the Scottish Police Federation, for example, although that might well come. It is important to give confidence about the independence and impartiality of any inquiry. When requests from interested and relevant stakeholders come in, I will give them due consideration, but Claire Baker can take it absolutely from my answer that part of the discussion will be with the family and, indeed, Mr
Bayoh’s legal representatives
Claire Baker in saluting once again the fortitude and dignity that the
Bayoh family have shown, and I thank her. I know that she has stood by the family and their calls for a public inquiry for many years.
