Compensation for people abused as residents of children's homes could total more than £40m, the Independent on Sunday reported (p6).
Welsh secretary William Hague and health secretary Stephen Dorrell are today announcing details of two reviews into sex abuse in children's homes.
Children's homes may be wonderful places for paedophiles, but appalling nightmares for the children who live in them, according to one local authority social services committee chairman, quoted in the Financial Times (June 15, p6).
The paper ran a feature on the confidential report on systematic abuse in north Wales children's homes over 20 years. It reported that Welsh secretary William Hague is expected to announce this week a parallel inquiry into the Clwyd children's home scandals.
