Jimmy Savile Inquiries And The Victims

EDM number 658 in 2012-13, proposed by John Hemming on 31/10/2012.
Categorised under the topics of Child care, Crime and Sexual offences.

That this House notes the inquiriesinto Jimmy Savile and others such as the Paedophile Information Exchange; believes that, althoughit is important to concentrate on ensuring that such cover-ups do not happen again, we should be concerned about the effect of such inquiries on the victims; and calls for consideration as to how the victims may be heard, if they wish, through for example anonymous statements, so that as part of the process they can feel supported and achieve closure given that Jimmy Savile will not be prosecuted.

This motion has been signed by a total of 3 MPs.
