On 5 and 6 April 2017 the Inquiry held a hearing to determine two applications by the Metropolitan Police Service:
- for an extension of time for restriction order applications on behalf of police officers formerly employed by the Special Demonstration Squad; and
- in respect of the Inquiry’s approach to those restriction order applications.
The Chairman determined those applications in a ruling dated 2 May 2017.
A copy of the ruling appears in the table below, together with the applications themselves, Counsel to the Inquiry’s notes, and the core participants’ submissions (listed in order of receipt).
