[Added 2016 Dec 22 Those looking for the next part of the report, although it has been given to some journalists, it is being released to the public in January]

Brilliant work by Shirley Oaks Survivors [2], unearthing the torture on children around Lambeth, from the past. Thank you also to the whistleblowers.

  1. artmanjosephgrech says:

    Children and Young adults were tortured in the Former Approved Schools Young offender institutions and Community Homes which adopted behaviour control regimes, especially when the homes employed staff who had experiences of operating these schemes. The scale may have been similar too those sexual harmed and in both instance staff made or encouraged/children commit physical and sexual offences against others in the establishments in question..

    The Coalition government although it is not clear if the coalition partners were consulted let alone involved knowingly excluding physical violence from the terms of the inquiry although as it clear from the Sexual Offences list of House of Commons and Lord Briefing papers violence, trafficking and slavery of woman and girls is understood to be one aspect of their treatment and has little to do with paedophilia. However it is clear from the preliminary statement by Professor Jay they have already listened. It was understandable that the unintended throw away comment by a panel member about wanting to get on with his own life angered a representative of the Shirley Oaks association at the Home Affairs committee. His years of suffering waiting to be listened to, for concerns to be addressed is sadly an all too familiar from those I have personally met or engaged with over the past 25 years. I hope he and others will be given the opportunity to hear the passion on their behalf spoken by Chris Bryant, Diane Abbot Lisa Nandy Yvette Cooper and others in the Urgent Question the day before.

    Frankly that it took a year for the panel to act is not good enough they are now on probation. It took my colleagues on the Gates Inquiry only one day on the Gates Inquiry to give their ultimatum to the Chairman after they consulted the then government department representative. The Chairman listened then and he listened later when it was agreed he would present the lawyers views on behalf institutions and the panel the view of the victims and those who warned and complained and were not listened to.
