£683,000 funding for North Wales abuse inquiry

North Wales Police will receive approximately £683,000 to support the police inquiry into child abuse in North Wales.

After a parliamentary question from Delyn MP David Hanson, the Government announced new funding for the operation, which will examine new allegations of historic child abuse in care homes.

I welcome the government’s response to my question and the new money that will help support our police as they carry out this important and historic inquiry to get justice for the victims of this terrible abuse.

However, the Minister failed to answer exactly how much this investigation is expected to cost, and made no assurances that the taxpayers of North Wales will not still have make a further contribution.

– David Hanson, MP for Delyn
