Inquiry Into Abuse In Care

EDM number 1059 in 2007-08, proposed by John Hemming on 27/02/2008.
Categorised under the topic of Children's social services.

That this House notes with sadness the revelations from Jersey on children in care; recognises that English local authorities have placed children in Jersey; recalls that there have been numerous proven reports of abuse in care in England; endorses the call of the Care Leavers Association for a public inquiry into abuse in care; and calls for the law to be changed to ensure that children can speak out about their treatment in care in all circumstances prior to adulthood.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
