The result of the proposal was moved to Hope Simpson Enquiry and Shaw Commission, respectively. --BDD (talk) 16:41, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
– To make consistent with all other relevant articles, including: Peel Commission, Woodhead Commission, King–Crane Commission, Haycraft Commission and Palin Commission. Both the suggested renames above are already redirects to the existing pages. Relisted. BDD (talk) 18:24, 20 August 2013 (UTC) Oncenawhile (talk) 09:39, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
- Yes and No. "Shaw Commission" is clearly correct. However, the word "commission" is problematic regarding Hope Simpson. It was not a "commission" in a legal sense and the report never calls it a commission. It was a commission in the informal sense of an inquiry, but then the capital "C" is not required. Am I being too picky? Zerotalk 10:04, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
- How about:
- Shaw Commission
- Hope Simpson Enquiry
- I agree with your correction - they should be differentiated. After all, it was the Shaw Commission that (indirectly) recommended the Hope Simpson work. My suggestion of Enquiry is because that is what Hope Simpson calls it twice in his introduction, and having skimmed the Shaw Report again I can't find a reference direct or specific enough.

- Sounds good to me. Zerotalk 09:54, 21 August 2013 (UTC)
