Mr Chapman QC is heading the Inquiry.

During the Inquiry it was discovered that Mr Petchy and Mr. Chapman each asked about the same number of questions, round about 250 each.  Mr. Mynors on the other hand, asked twice as many questions.  Then Mr Mynors asked the Inspector if he could draw a line and not have any more witnesses.  Mr. Chapman replied that he could not because this might leave him open to an accusation of being negligent and he had a duty to examine all the evidence regardless of how many witeness put themselves forward.  He did agree that witnesses could put their evidence in writing so they would not have to endure waiting around to give testimony and he felt that written submissions would be acceptable without cross-examination.
