Considerations of legal issues of Inquiries Reports recommeended by Waterhouse

Cathy Fox made this Freedom of Information request to Law Commission

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Law Commission,

In he Waterhouse Report conclusions and recommendations reported here http://archive.is/l1syg it says
The Cartrefle and Jillings reports

(44) Clwyd County Council cannot fairly be blamed for failing to publish the Cartrefle and Jillings reports before it ceased to exist, having regard to the continuing police investigation at that time and its contractual duty to its insurers; but it is desirable that the Law Commission should consider the legal issues that arise in relation to the conduct of inquiries of a similar kind initiated by local authorities or other public bodies and publication of the reports of such inquiries.
Did the Law Commission consider the legal issues?
Can you send me the Report of the Law Commission having considered the legal issues?

Yours faithfully,

Cathy Fox
