Officials won't see Jersey's Care Inquiry report before it's published

No officials will see the report from Jersey's Care Inquiry until it is published.

The panel investigating historical child abuse in the island are retiring to analyse the evidence and write up their findings, which are due to be published at the end of this year.

It follows two years of public hearings.

Chair, Frances Oldham QC, says some parties have said it would be a good idea to be given notice of potential criticisms and to engage with the Panel before it's finalised.

But, she says anyone has had the opportunity to engage with the Panel though giving evidence, during the public consultations and during closing submissions.

She added that criticisms have already been put to the parties during the investigation.
