"The core task of the panel is now to weigh and assess the evidence and to take forward the preparation of the Inquiry report and the Inquiry’s recommendations. That will obviously be a significant undertaking and a painstaking process in the light of the amount and complexity of the evidence and submissions that we have received.
I recognise that there will be considerable public interest in this issue. I’m afraid it’s simply not possible to give a date by which the Inquiry report will be published. What we can say is that the report will be published as soon as reasonably possible and that the public can be assured that the Inquiry will work assiduously to ensure that is the case.”
– Rt Hon Sir Patrick Coghlin, 14 December 2018
