11 Q. And is there anything else surrounding the circumstances
12 of Dr Kelly's death that you can assist his Lordship
14 A. Not with this initial part, sir, no.
It seems to me to be at least plausible that PC Franklin was intending to (or expecting to?) talk about some other matter(s) after "this initial part".
Did counsel to the Hutton Inquiry deliberately terminate PC Franklin's evidence part way through the scope of his written witness statement?
If so, why?
Was PC Franklin expecting to go on to tell the Hutton Inquiry about the "secret helicopter landing"? See The Death of David Kelly - The Secret Helicopter Landing of 18th July 2003.
If my speculation is correct, why might counsel to the Hutton Inquiry elect not to disclose the "secret helicopter landing"?
The quoted evidence form PC Franklin comes from page 42 his oral testimony given during the morning of Tuesday 2nd September 2003.
