The cost of the Saville Inquiry is £181.2 million (as of December 2007).

The Tribunal are currently engaged in compiling their final report. The Tribunal have advised that it is not possible at this stage to give a precise indication of when the report will be submitted to me, due to the complexity and volume of evidence with which they are dealing. We are informed that the submission of the report is not imminent, and that recent media speculation that the report will be concluded in May 2008 has no basis in fact.
