Daniel Machover in the Guardian on the urgent need for a Covid-19 inquiry
6 May 2020
Head of Civil Litigation Daniel Machover has written an article in the Guardian on the urgent need for a full public inquiry into the Covid-19 pandemic.
Daniel argues that although the UK is still experiencing the first wave of the pandemic, the public should not be reluctant to discuss the terms of a public inquiry into the Government’s handling of it.
“Unless a statutory inquiry is established now (perhaps along the lines of the ongoing inquiry into the fire at Grenfell Tower),” Daniel writes, “there is a risk some evidence will not be preserved, and those with facts to hide will have the opportunity to lead us away from a judge-led inquiry towards something far less independent and rigorous, or to hive off certain areas from public scrutiny.”
