Module 6 hearings
The Inquiry continues to hear evidence for Module 6, which examines the role of central government in establishing the legislative regime and formulating guidance on how to comply with it. Module 6 hearings are scheduled to conclude in early April.
The Inquiry will then move on to Module 4, which will examine the response of local and central government in the immediate aftermath of the fire at Grenfell Tower. The Inquiry will publish a fact sheet which sets out the structure and scope of Module 4 in greater detail once hearings for this module commence.
The Inquiry will not hold hearings during the week beginning Monday 18 April 2022. The Inquiry premises will be closed to the public during this time, and will reopen on Monday 25 April 2022.
Monthly community drop-in sessions
The next monthly drop-in session for BSRs and members of the public will be on Thursday 28 April, 16:30-17:30, at the Inquiry venue. These sessions are an opportunity for members of the public and local community to learn more about the Inquiry process and to ask any questions that they may have for members of the Inquiry team.
As before, it is not necessary to book in advance to attend. We would ask all attendees to observe social distancing.
As at 29 March 2022, the Inquiry has disclosed 20,752 documents in Phase 1 and 298,193 in Phase 2, making a total of 318,945.
Core Participant figures
The full list of the Inquiry's core participants (CPs) is available on the key documents page. Further information on CPs is provided in our guide, which includes details of the role they play in the Inquiry and how it differs from being a witness.
The total number of CPs is 644.
