Southwood: BSE Inquiry NCUACS 108/7/02 GENERAL INTRODUCTION PROVENANCE The material was received from Sir Richard Southwood in 2001. DESCRIPTION OF THE COLLECTION The bulk of the material covers the period from 1996, when the first public announcement was made of a possible link between Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy in cattle and CJD (Creutzfeld-Jacob Disease) in humans, to February 2001, but it is mainly concerned with Southwood's involvement in the official BSE Inquiry from December 1997 to October 2000. There are a few documents included relating to the Southwood Working Party and dating back to 1988 and 1989, sent as part of the work of the Inquiry. There is THE BSE INQUIRY The material supplements the papers previously catalogued as Section M of NCUACS catalogue no. 71/1/98, and is therefore numbered as a continuation of that sequence. The content comprises correspondence with colleagues, members of the Working Party, legal representatives and members of the general public, drafts and revisions of statements and evidence given to the Inquiry, and a little research material. The presentation is chronological as far as possible, with a brief indication of the contents of the folders. a short sub-section at M.135-M.142 dealing with research and publications. M.143-M.162 contains correspondence received from colleagues, officials, members of the farming community and the general public. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Inquiry was announced in Parliament on 22 December 1997 and set up on 12 January 1998. It was headed by Lord Justice Phillips (later Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers); the other members were Mrs June Bridgeman CB and Professor Malcom Ferguson-Smith FRS. The Inquiry's terms of reference were to establish and review the history of the emergence and identification of BSE and new variant CJD in the United Kingdom, and of the action taken in response to it up to 20 March 1996; to reach conclusions on the adequacy of that response, taking Into account the state of knowledge at the time; and to report on these matters to the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, the Secretary of State for Health and the Secretaries of State for T.R.E. Southwood: BSE Inquiry NCUACS 108/7/02 In his opening remarks, the Chairman outlined his intentions for the procedure of the Inquiry. Hearings were to be public, and transcripts of evidence, taken down as delivered by real time transmission, were posted regularly on the Inquiry's web site and also made available in documentary form. The first stage (Phase1) was to be concerned with establishing factual evidence. Witnesses would submit written statements and give oral evidence to the Inquiry based on their statements, amplifying or explaining as required. It was repeatedly stressed that fact-finding was the sole purpose of this phase, no criticisms of witnesses being implied. After a review of all the evidence by members of the Inquiry, and the production of Draft Factual Accounts (DFAs) on the topics covered, Phase 2 would move to consider potential criticisms, which would be notified to witnesses by letter known as a Salmon letter. Recipients of such letters would prepare statements in response, would attend a further public hearing, and could if they wished make additional submissions. A final report would then be prepared and submitted. This procedural plan was followed, but the intended time scale was not. The report of the Inquiry had been scheduled for 31 December 1998 after one year's work. In the event, Phase 1 hearings occupied from March to December 1998. Salmon letters were sent out in December 1998, and the hearings of Phase 2, described as ‘clarification, conflict and potential criticisms’, began in March 1999. On the opening day of the Inquiry, 9 March 1998, the Chairman had already asked for and been granted an extension of six months, to enable its report to be delivered to Ministers on 30 June 1999. Further extensions proved necessary and the report was eventually published on 26 October 2000, in 16 volumes, its evidence and documentation also being available on its web site and on a series of CD-ROMs held at the Public Record Office. The Southwood Working Party and its report of February 1989 were pivotal to the Inquiry; the first Draft Factual Account (DFA) to appear, in January 1999, and Volume 4 of the published report, were titled ‘The Southwood Working Party 1988-1989.' References to it appear in every volume, particularly Volume 11 ‘Scientists after Southwood’ and Volume 1 ‘Findings and Conclusions’. communication between the Secretariat of the Inquiry and the members of the Working Party, The Working Party's statements and responses to the Inquiry were usually drafted in the first instance by Southwood, with comments and revisions by its other members (Sir Anthony Epstein, Dr. W.B. Martin and Lord Walton) and the oral evidence given on 11 March 1998 (Phase 1) and 21 July 1999 (Phase 2) was led by him. Draft Factual Accounts and transcripts of evidence submitted by other witnesses were also circulated for comment by the Working Party. The opening of Phase 2, heralding a more confrontational process, led to arrangements for legal representation. The firm chosen to act for the Working Party was Macfarlanes; J.H.R. Manners and D. Lavender were those principally involved. From December 1998 they became the conduit of T.R.E. Southwood: BSE Inquiry NCUACS 108/7/02 transmitting and advising on statements and responses and also taking part in client meetings and attending Inquiry hearings as Counsel or representatives. William Norris QC was appointed as counsel for the Southwood Working Party. Sir Anthony Epstein and Lord Walton were also advised by the Medical Defence Union Ltd. The very intensive exchanges during 1999 are almost all channelled via Macfarlanes and often involve three- or four-cornered correspondence. Dr. Hilary Pickles, formerly a Principal Medical Officer at the Department of Health and a joint secretary of the Working Party, also contributed statements and letters to the Inquiry and to Southwood and these are included in the sequence. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS Thanks are due to Sir Richard for making the material available and for his generous help in identifying and clarifying documents. Mrs Belinda Wood, Sir Richard’s secretary, has always been unfailingly helpful. Jeannine B. Alton Caroline F. Thibeaud Oxford/Bath, 2002 T.R.E.
