As there are several complex issues still to be determined that require engagement with Core Participants, there remains some uncertainty around the completion date for certain stages; however, those milestones on which there is a greater degree of certainty have been added to the table below.

To manage such a broad remit, the Inquiry has divided its work for Modules One and Two into the following six “tranches”:

  1. Special Demonstration Squad officers and managers and those affected by deployments (1968-1982)
  2. Special Demonstration Squad officers and managers and those affected by deployments (1983-1992)
  3. Special Demonstration Squad officers and managers and those affected by deployments (1993-2007)
  4. National Public Order Intelligence Unit officers and managers and those affected by deployments
  5. Other undercover policing and those affected by deployments
  6. Management & oversight by mid and senior rank officers, other agencies and government departments

The table will be updated with additional dates on a quarterly basis.
