Yesterday, I blogged about the fact that the First Minister of Wales was about to be asked to begin an enquiry into the Waterhouse Enquiry. The original Enquiry published in 2000 related to allegations of allegations of impropriety against children in a north Welsh care home back in the 1970s and 80s.
Speaking from Abu Dhabi today, the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, has announced that he will immediately set up such an investigation.
The prime minister added that this “is an absolutely hateful and abhorrent crime and these allegations are truly dreadful and they mustn’t be left hanging in the air, so I’m taking action today.
“I’m going to be asking a senior independent figure to lead an urgent investigation into whether the original inquiry was properly constituted and properly did its job and to report urgently to the government.”
Mr Cameron also urged anyone who knows anything about the allegations to contact police.
