A spokesperson said: “The Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry will be moving to new accommodation this summer.
“The leases for the current Inquiry premises in Rosebery House are due to expire later this year and whilst every effort was made to extend them, that was not possible because the landlords are planning to redevelop the site necessitating the Inquiry’s relocation.
“Public hearings will require to be paused as we work on decommissioning Rosebery House and preparing our new premises. They should be able to recommence in the autumn.
“Meanwhile, the Inquiry’s work will continue, including the taking of statements, ongoing investigative work, preparation for announced case studies, continuing work on the preparation of case study findings for publication, analysis of evidence and forward planning.
“The Inquiry’s new premises are in central Edinburgh, will provide suitable accommodation for both office and hearing suite space and have excellent transport links. Further details will be made available soon.”
