The following reports were commissioned by the Inquiry for the purposes of panel deliberations under the Inquiries Act 2013. They are being publicly released in the interests of availability of information for the public and a wide range of mental health and addiction stakeholders. The commissioned materials give an insight into other evidence that assisted the Panel in its deliberations.
