MP calls for care abuse report to be published

Ann Clwyd has called for a pulped report into sex abuse claims at children's homes across North Wales to be published.

The Labour MP said she had read the report commissioned by Clwyd County Council as she called for an over-arching inquiry in the sexual abuse of children.

In a question to Commons Leader Andrew Lansley, Ms Clwyd said:

"Can I ask that the Jillings report be published? I saw it. I wasn't supposed to see it. It was shown to me. I saw it at the time. It was subsequently pulped by the then Clywd County Council because they were afraid of the attitudes of the insurers.

"I would say please get the Jillings report published because it shows buggery, rape, bestiality, violent assaults and torture, and the effects on those young boys at that time cannot be under-estimated."
