Child Protection: Bichard Inquiry

Volume 687: debated on Monday 11 December 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What progress has been made in ensuring the delivery of the Bichard inquiry recommendations before 2010. [HL260]

Over two-thirds of the 31 recommendations from the Bichard inquiry have already been substantially delivered. Comprehensive programme management arrangements are in place to ensure delivery of the remainder through to 2010. Some of the most significant aspects of the programme, such as IMPACT, will generate improvements and benefits incrementally during this period.
