Asked whether the Government would reconsider the terms of reference of Sir Peter Gibson’s inquiry, the PMS replied that the objective was to have a credible inquiry that could look at issues thoroughly and properly, but not one that was long and costly. The PMS added that the Government has been clear that access would be given to the relevant Government papers, including those held by the intelligence services. The Cabinet Secretary and the Head of the Intelligence services had been very clear there would be full cooperation from the various departments and agencies.

Asked again if the terms of reference were sufficient, the PMS reiterated that this inquiry needs to be thorough and it must establish the facts. He said that the terms of reference were reasonably broad.
