Edward Wilding gave oral testimony to the Hutton Inquiry but his written report is absent from the Hutton Inquiry web site.
An electronic copy of Andrew Gilligan's notes of the meeting with David Kelly on 22nd May 2003 was dated 21st May 2003!
I can identify only two possible explanations for this discrepancy:
1. That Andrew Gilligan made notes about what David Kelly (supposedly) said the day before he met Kelly. In other words that Andrew Gilligan fabricated notes in advance of the meeting.
2. That the clock on the electronic organiser used by Andrew Gilligan was seriously in error.
The written report produced by Edward Wilding is not on the Hutton Inquiry web site, hence I am asking Andrew Gilligan for a copy in order, hopefully, definitively to resolve this troubling uncertainty.
The title of the email is:
Death of David Kelly - Request for copy of the Wilding Report
The text of the email is as follows:
I am writing to request a copy of the report produced by Edward Wilding in which he attempted to elucidate why a copy of your supposed conversation with David Kelly seemingly was produced before you met Dr. Kelly in May 2003.
In the oral evidence that Edward Wilding gave to the Hutton Inquiry two possible interpretations remained, in my view:
1. That you produced a fabricated account on 21st May 2003 of a supposed meeting with David Kelly which did not take place until the following day. In other words that you set Dr. David Kelly up as a "fall guy" (to borrow the words of Andrew MacKinlay MP at the Foreign Affairs Committee meeting on 15th July 2003) to conceal the identity of what one might term "The Real Source".
2. That the clock on your electronic organiser was significantly inaccurate and that such inaccuracy was the cause of the seeming fabricated data.
I am sure you can see how the failure of the Hutton Inquiry adequately to resolve this matter may be deemed "insufficiency of inquiry".
For the avoidance of doubt this email is an "open letter". I will post a copy on my blog which has an ongoing exmination of information about the death of Dr. David Kelly at http://chilcotscheatingus.blogspot.com/.
The text of this email is posted here: http://chilcotscheatingus.blogspot.com/2011/02/death-of-david-kelly-open-letter-to.html.
Additionally, I am copying this email to Mr. Kevin McGinty at the Attorney General's Office, since the matter about which I seek information from you is one aspect of "insufficiency of inquiry" with respect to a possible application to the High Court by the Attorney General.
Separately, in the interests of transparency, I will copy to you the email I am sending to the Attorney General explaining why further investigation of this matter is still required, in my opinion.
If you are an innocent party in this matter, it seems to me that it would be of assistance in finally laying this matter to rest if you made a full copy of the Wilding Report publicly available.
