I've been following this via the media and was interested re the use of e-mails as evidence. I'm curious as to the powers of the enquiry re obtaining full data and whether the data has been captured as per UK criminal procedures. No pro connection with the enquiry, just curious.

Only as a reference for those not familiar with the topic:

https://www.grenfelltowerinquiry.org.uk/

The Phase 1 report is (IMHO) exceptionally clearly written, direct and void of unneeded technicisms while providing enough details for the technocal oriented.

They used NUIX to trawl through vast amounts of data

I think the question was more "how was the data collected". 

It seems that the data was collected by the MPS, as per:

https://assets.grenfelltowerinquiry.org.uk/inline-files/Memorandum-of-understanding-with-the-Metropolitan-Police-Service_0.pdf

and:

https://assets.grenfelltowerinquiry.org.uk/inline-files/Explanatory%20note%20to%20the%20addendum%20to%20memorandum%20of%20understanding.pdf

so, presumably, since it was collected by the Police, it was collected according to their "normal" procedures, i.e. conforming with UK criminal Law.
