Probably because there is an upcoming election in Britain.

The date of that article predates the announcement of the election by a week ;)

As the Independent Review does not include any MPs it should, I believe, come out in May (as last announced).

"Due to the general election on 8 June 2017 the Committee has now completed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 3 May 2017, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry. "

What were they investigating again? :(
http://www.bbc.com/sport/cycling/39811492
A long-awaited report into an alleged culture of bullying at British Cycling is expected to be published in the week after the 8 June general election.

An investigation started last year after claims made by former Great Britain track sprinter Jess Varnish and other Olympians and Paralympians.

A draft report that criticised the organisation was leaked in March. (see http://www.bbc.com/sport/cycling/39228945 )

Due to rules preventing publication before an election, the week beginning 12 June is now targeted.

The report - co-commissioned by UK Sport and British Cycling - is now finished.

However, the political convention of purdah, which prevents some government-related announcements before elections, has blocked its release prior to 8 June.

A panel of five - including former England rugby union coach Stuart Lancaster and led by Annamarie Phelps, the chair of British Rowing - has produced the report.

Initial publication was pushed back because of the number of people wanting to speak to the panel, and the legal obligation to give individuals criticised a right of reply led to further delays.

The March leak, published in the Daily Mail, outlined a "culture of fear" at British Cycling, with some staff "bullied".

In response, British Cycling admitted it did not pay "sufficient care and attention" to the wellbeing of staff and athletes at the expense of winning medals.

British Cycling has announced a "timely" overhaul of its medical services for athletes following an independent review.

Dr Rod Jaques, director of medical services at the English Institute of Sport, examined British Cycling's practices after it was scrutinised as part of an anti-doping investigation into a mystery medical package.

His recommendations include the creation of a new 'head of medicine' and a team to look after riders' physical and mental well-being.

He also says there should be a clinical governance committee, which will report to the British Cycling Board and which will monitor the medical services.

Stephen Park, British Cycling's performance director, said: "Dr Jaques' recommendations are timely and sensible."

Both the national governing body and road-racing off-shoot Team Sky were heavily criticised for record-keeping failures at a Culture, Media and Sport select committee hearing in March.

... a long-awaited report on the culture at British Cycling and accusations of bullying and sexism against top-level riders will be published next week.

A long-awaited report into an alleged culture of bullying at British Cycling will be published on Wednesday.

An investigation started last year after claims made by former Great Britain track sprinter Jess Varnish and other Olympians and Paralympians.

A draft report that criticised the organisation was leaked in March. (See http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/othersports/article-4298982/British-Cycling-s-wheels-blown-explosive-report.html)

Co-commissioned by UK Sport and British Cycling in April 2016, the report was prepared by a panel of five led by British Rowing chair Annamarie Phelps.

Initial publication was pushed back because of the number of people wanting to speak to the panel and the legal obligation to give individuals criticised a right of reply led to further delays.

Do you ever read anything? Ever?

The scope of the report stated clearly that it would not cover doping or anything related. So the answer to your question is, no.

You still don't understand.

The independent report into British Cycling only covered sexism, bullying and harrasment. It by its own words did not cover doping and misappropriation of money.

You can still talk about doping in the Clinic.

Simple.

It was maxwellised to likely avoid legal issues, if this went to court and a judge found against the accusers then the whole thing falls apart.

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/varnish-critical-of-final-version-of-report-into-british-cycling/
"According to The Times, Varnish’s legal team is considering further action in the wake of the report, which acknowledges that “good governance was lacking at BC Board level in relation to how it managed the culture and behaviours within the WCP". A draft version of the report leaked in March, however, was amended in the intervening period, including the claim that the board had sanitised an internal inquiry into Varnish’s allegations.

Passages critical of Team Sky manager Dave Brailsford, who was also British Cycling performance director until 2014, have also been removed, following a process of “Maxwellisation”, in which those named in the draft report were able to present dispute or counter its contents.

Former British Cycling coach Ken Matheson had provided evidence, and he told The Times that he was “quite appalled” by the final version of the report.

“I would say it is a whitewash,” Matheson said. “The whole purpose of this review was to get to the truth and I’m not sure we have. This is an organisation that has been sick for an awful long time. I feel I have totally wasted my time.”"
This seems to be not over yet - SDB's critical passages removed ... well, well. Who would have thought it. :rolleyes:
