On 9 November 2023, the Government announced the establishment of a statutory Inquiry, to investigate the death of Mr Jalal Uddin in Rochdale, Greater Manchester.

A copy of the Terms of Reference for the Inquiry was placed in the Libraries of both Houses.

An inaccuracy has since been identified in the Terms of Reference and, in line with the Inquiries Act 2005, the Chair of the Inquiry, His Honour Edward Thomas Henry Teague KC, Chief Coroner of England and Wales, has been consulted about amending the Terms of Reference to correct the inaccuracy.

The amendment does not materially affect the operation or the remit of the Inquiry.

In order to comply with Section 6(3) of the Inquiries Act 2005, I will place a copy of the amended Terms of Reference in the Libraries of both Houses.
