Key questions asked by minister after Khan review

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".
