The children's minister Edward Timpson has requested answers to ten key questions following the publication of a serious case review into Hamzah Khan's death.
Here are some of them:
- Whether or not one of Hamzah's siblings was assessed by social care workers after reporting domestic violence to the police in December 2006.
- Why no assessment was carried out in April 2009 after police reported to social care that Hamzah's mother Amanda Hutton appeared to be "under the influence".
- Why an assessment was not conducted in January 2011 when the school of one of Hamzah's siblings reported low attendance rates and that the child "appeared physically neglected".
Local MP George Galloway gives his reaction to the publication of today's report
It is always easy to apply hindsight after Hamzah Khan's death and in such a tragedy easy too to apportion blame.
