Hutton Inquiry - Meetings with Janice Kelly, ACC Michael Page and Peter Neyroud

National Archives did not have the information requested.

Dear National Archives,

This is a Freedom of Information Request relating to the Hutton Inquiry in 2003, which ostensibly examined the circumstances surrounding the death of Dr. David Kelly.

1. Lord Hutton met on or about 26th July 2003 with Janice Kelly. Who asked for that meeting to take place? Who attended that meeting?

2. I ask for any notes of that meeting together with any
correpondence regarding the arrangement of the meeting.

3. Lord Hutton stated that Janice Kelly gave him some information. I ask for a copy of that information.

4. Professor Keith Hawton made a submission to the Hutton Inquiry which was never publicly disclosed. I ask for a copy of that submission.

5. According to papers released by the Attorney General's Office Dr. Kelly's mental health was assessed by Professor Gisli Gudjonsson. On what date did that assessment take place and at what location?

6. I ask for a copy of the assessment by Professor Gudjonsson.

7. On what dates and at what times did Lord Hutton meet with Chief Constable Peter Neyroud of Thames Valley Police?

8. I ask for copies of any notes, minutes or such documents of the meeting(s) between Lord Huton and Mr. Neyroud.

9. On what dates and at what times did Lord Hutton meet with
Assistant Chief Constable Michael Page?

10. I ask for copies of any notes, minutes or similar documents of the meeting(s) between Lord Hutton and Assistant Chief Constable Page.

I am unsure if the Ministry of Justice or the National Archives currently hold the information and documents requested. Therefore I am making a Freedom of Information Request in identical terms to each organisation so that each may respond appropriately according to the documents it holds.

Thank you

Yours faithfully,

(Dr) Andrew Watt
