HISTORIC #ChildSexualAbuse #CSA debated in House of Commons on 27 November 2014

Here’s the link to the debate in Hansard, starting at 2.38. And here are the links to Parliament TV:

  1. Introduction
  2. Simon Danczuk MP
  3. Tim Loughton MP
  4. Sir Paul Beresford
  5. Zac Goldsmith MP
  6. John Hemming MP“The history here is all about abuse of power by employees of the state. The fact that it involves the maltreatment of children for sexual gratification makes this all the worse. For the future, we need to make it harder for state employees to conceal abuses of power. More transparency and accountability are needed, as well as less secrecy. Parliament, which is the voice of the people, has to stand on the side of the powerless. Whitehall mandarins, judges, BBC managers, council bureaucrats and professionals all have their own interests and a desire to hide mistakes. Parliament needs to balance the scales on the side of the weak-those without wealth who are crying out and not being heard.”  – For these words, John Hemming was elected Parliamentarian of the Week by the Freedom Association.
  7. Diana Johnson MP
  8. Karen Bradley MP
  9. Simon Danczuk MP

Other MPs who spoke are: Sir William Cash, Ian Lucas, Julian Smith, Mark Reckless, Jeremy Corbyn and finally The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department Karen Bradley who said:

The priority, of course, is to find a suitable chair to lead the hugely important work of the inquiry. As I have set out, that process is under way. I cannot give the House the date by which a new chair will be appointed, but I can say that it is a priority for the Home Secretary and the Government. We will appoint a new chair as soon as possible, but we must take the time to get it right. We must ensure that survivors have had their say and have been heard, and that parliamentarians and other interested parties have been appropriately engaged in the process so that we can all be confident that we have the right person in place to lead this once-in-a-generation opportunity to deliver justice for those who have suffered and to save other vulnerable young children from the appalling abuse that so many have endured. That is the least we can do.

    Simon Danczuk would be Ideal with this investigation with the help of The team from Pie and Mash who have much evidence

    More revelations that can only lead to a clean up of the records – eventually. The sooner the better.
