Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse Report on Anglican Church

Volume 681: debated on Tuesday 6 October 2020

Today the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has published its latest report, which can be found at:

This report relates to its investigation into institutional failures to protect children from sexual abuse within the Anglican Church. I pay tribute to the strength and courage of the victims and survivors who have shared their experiences to ensure the inquiry can deliver its vital work.

The Government will review this report and consider how to respond to its content in due course.

I would like to thank Professor Jay and her panel for their continued work to uncover the truth, expose what went wrong in the past and to learn the lessons for the future.
