Further response submitted by the Rt Hon
Dr John Reid MP
I enclose for your information and attention further
Advice for James Goudie QC which refers to Section X (conclusions)
of Ms Filkin`s final Report. The "final" Report to which
this Advice refers is that from Ms Filkin dated 25th October,
her first version of that Report (dated 4th October) having been
changed, I understand, after receipt of my Submission to the Committee.
This further Advice is in addition to that already
sent to you as part of my October Submission.
I apologise for the short period between receipt
of this information and tomorrow`s Committee meeting, but you
will appreciate that I was allowed sight of the Report only at
the end of last week.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. (I hope
