David Cameron said the government "will not hold back" in taking further action if new inquiries into allegations of child sexual abuse in North Wales show that more needs to be done.
The first thing to do is to focus laser-like on the institution itself. The Government has moved very fast to put in place the most rapid possible investigation of the key issue at hand which is: was the Waterhouse inquiry conducted properly; was information withheld; were witnesses not listened to?
I would stress that what I am going to establish here is an independent figure to get rapidly to the truth. If then subsequent action has to be taken we will not hold back in taking it but we shouldn't pre-judge that first piece of work

A former resident of Bryn Estyn care home says he wrongly identified the Conservative peer as one of the men who carried out sexual abuse.
