Statement by The Right Honourable Peter Riddell

Peter Riddell was today appointed as the Director of the Institute for Government. He will therefore be leaving The Detainee Inquiry Panel at the end of the year. He said:

‘It has been a privilege to work as a member of¬† The Detainee Inquiry , with such a dedicated team. My sole reason for leaving The Detainee Inquiry is my appointment as Director of the Institute for Government which I take up in the New Year. I remain totally committed to the purposes and approach of the Inquiry – as set out in the Terms of Reference and Protocol of July 2011 – and give complete support to the work of the Panel, the Secretariat and the Legal team.’
