FORMER CLWYD CARE STAFF ADD TO CALLS FOR PUBLIC INQUIRY

Care staff who worked at one of the biggest homes involved in the north Wales child abuse scandal yesterday backed calls for a full public inquiry, reports The Independent (p5).

Concern is growing that a report commissioned by Clwyd CC, which has not been published after pressure was applied by insurers, may never appear.

A spokesman for staff of Bryn Estyn Home in Clwyd, where two workers were convicted for abuse, said: 'The internal inquiry was doomed to failure because many of us foresaw there would be problems over publication because of the legal issues involved.'

Labour's health spokesman in Wales, Rhodri Morgan, will demand publication of the inquiry report when Welsh secretary William Hague returns from a United States trade mission at the end of this week, The Independent reports.
