22 March 2018
THE GRENFELL Tower Inquiry Procedural Hearing is underway and provided details on core participants.
The Inquiry published details of core particpants. The full list is available on the key documents page. The names of those who are currently under the age of 18 have been excluded. According to the Inquiry's website, the chairman has granted core participant status to 532 individuals and organisations. 504 are bereaved, survivors and local residents, while 28 are organisations
The Chairman received applications from 22 core participants to have their names withheld from the list for a variety of personal reasons. Among them were 7 core participants who asked to be allowed to remain anonymous throughout the Inquiry’s proceedings.
The Chairman granted anonymity to three core participants, whose names appear in the list as AAA, CCC and DDD, and refused the applications of the other 4. Of the 16 who only asked for their names to be withheld from the list, the Chairman rejected 12 of their applications and deferred 4 pending the receipt of further information.
The Chairman has published a ruling setting out the principles which he has applied in making these decisions. The Inquiry continues to receive applications for core participant status. The published list will be amended periodically to reflect the current position.
