If Mr Colbran (Letters, July) were to quote evidence from the Morris report we might take notice, but quoting from the Penrose findings is hardly evidence at all. The terms of reference specifically excluded any matter that bore upon the quality of the court judgments ā€“ the central plank of the whole story ā€“ so the report was skewed before it began. Lawyers might consider they can prove things by manipulating words and careful stage-management, but scientists require uninhibited openness. I hope most actuaries are scientists and Iā€™m sure Brendan McBride is.
