UK govt ministers under pressure amid more calls for child abuse probe!
Andrew Lansley: No debate on child sex abuse now
The professional organisation for social workers, the British Association of Social workers, has asked its 15000 members to lobby MPs to press for a national overarching inquiry into historic child sexual abuse
It comes as the number of MPs backing the call launched by seven MPs including former children’s minister, Tim Loughton and Zac Goldsmith has now jumped to 88.
The full story by my colleagues Mark Conrad and Alex Varley-Winter is published on the Exaro website today.
David Niven,former chairman of the BASW who runs a child protection consultancy, told Exaro that a national inquiry was “long overdue”.
“A national inquiry is much needed, and it is about time it happened. We have campaigned for decades for an inquiry that would be comprehensive, which would ‘clear the air’, reassure the public and co-ordinate the way forward for child protection.”
