Arrangements for Module 6 and Module 3 Closing Statements

Module 5 began on 20th September 2021. More information on Module 5 can be found here.
Module 3 closing statements will be heard following the conclusion of Module 5. This is currently
expected to be in the week commencing Monday 25 October 2021.

It is currently expected that Module 6 will start no earlier than 28 October 2021. The precise start
date will depend on the progress of Module 5.

Module 6 will be divided into four broad topics:

  • Firefighting;
  • Testing and certification;
  • Fire risk assessment; and 
  • The role of central Government. 

The module will commence with opening statements relating to firefighting.

Opening statements relating to the remaining topics will be made after the witnesses relating to
firefighting have completed their evidence. That is currently expected to occur no earlier than the
first week of December 2021.

Confirmed timings for Module 3 closing statements and Module 6 opening statements will be
published in due course.

Monthly community drop-in sessions

Now that the government has removed most of its Covid-19 restrictions, the Inquiry will resume
