Holding answer received on 20 January 2015

Before the panel began its substantive work, and the secretariat was fully established, limited guidance was offered to those panel members who needed it.

Panel members are now supported by their own independent secretariat and Counsel. The secretariat will have its own procedures on speaking in publicabout the work of the Inquiry, although we would expect any procedures to respect the

confidentiality of meetings held with survivors.
