Call for Evidence on the OPA website

Lord Carlile's Call for Evidence has been placed on the home page of the OPA website. An email has also been sent to everybody on the OPA email list.

The text of the Call for Evidence on the OPA site is the same as that which was published in the Gazette, but with the addition of Lord Carlile's email address

However, the home pages of the school and abbey websites still make no reference to the Call for Evidence. 


  1. I have tried to submit evidence frm my time at St Benedict's '73 - 80 and both Lord Carlisle email and CathChild email addresses have bounced back.

    This isn't a great response for someone who has been reluctant to confront these issues for 35 years.

    Can anyone confirm correct addresses to forward infomation.

  2. Lord Carlile's parliament email address seems to be correct, certainly it the same same as the address given in his biography on the parliament website. All I can suggest is that you try again.

    As for Peter Turner, you seem to have the wrong email address for him. if you want to contact him, then his email address can be found here.

  3. Alternatively you could write to him, as I did, at his chambers 9-12 Bell Yard, WC2A 2JR. Sometimes the old fashioned way is best.
