The Justice Select Committee has reported back on the Peter Ellis petition. Regretably it has not recommended an inquiry, but it has made some useful suggested law changes which should help prevent a repeat.

The report includes a summary of Lynley’s Hood book by the Parliamentary Library. Well worth a read.
The issue is not dead though. If there is a National-led Government, Don Brash has confirmed there would be a full independent inquiry with sufficient powers to get to the bottom of the issue.
