To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the terms of reference are for the inquiry led by Mark Ellison QC announced on 6 March 2014 into whether undercover police officers caused miscarriages of justice; whether Mr Ellison will be given access to all documentation from Operation Herne for his review; whether members of the public will be able to give evidence to Mr Ellison during his review; and whether the review will cover cases involving the National Public Order Intelligence Unit.

The scope and terms of reference for this review are being determined. My Rt. Hon. Friend the Home Secretary made it clear in her statement to the House on 6 March 2014, Official Report, column 1063 that "Mark Ellison and the CPS will be provided with whatever access they judge necessary to relevant documentary evidence".
