Questions over cost and support for abuse inquiry

Shadow Justice Minister David Hanson wants to know what resources will be available to the top police officer investigating the way abuse allegations were dealt with in the 1970s and 80s. The inquiry is to be led by Keith Bristow, director General of the new National Crime Agency.

But the NCA hasn't yet been formally set up which is why the Delyn MP is asking the Home Secretary to explain what resources will be given to Keith Bristow.
