Evidence from witnesses

Recordings of witness testimonies along with any supporting documentation they provided are available below. 

Please note that witnesses were invited with an understanding that they would have strong views on the topic, which assembly members may find  uncomfortable or difficult to listen to.  

We were able to offer support to assembly members, which we cannot offer to members who choose to watch the testimonies in their own time. Please be aware that you may find some of the evidence presented distressing. You can find links to support services here >>
