Children's charity Barnardo's has said that the government must not "drag its heels" in setting up an inquiry into abuse suffered by child victims in Rotherham.
The Government must not drag its heels any longer. It needs to get this inquiry off the ground so we can start to hear the voices of silenced children.
Mr Khan said Barnardo's was "bitterly disappointed" that Home Secretary Theresa May did not take the opportunity to change the law so that children can no longer be referred to as "prostitutes".
Children as young as 11 were raped by large groups of men, a new inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham has found.
A report into 16 years of child sexual abuse in Rotherham has concluded that the true scale of exploitation in the town will never be known.
