PRESSURE FOR PUBLICATION OF JILLINGS REPORT MOUNTS

Pressure on Welsh secretary William Hague to act over the suppression of the Jillings report into abuse in Clwyd children's homes was mounting last night, writes The Western Mail (p6).

Labour's health spokesman in Wales, Rhodri Morgan, said he would be tabling a series of parliamentary questions and organising a delegation of MPs to seek an urgent meeting with Mr Hague calling for the report to be published.

The parliamentary questions will ask whether it is right for insurance companies to interfere in the process of government and whether they can effectively veto reports of official investigations, reports the Mail.

The same MPs criticise former Clwyd CC for bowing to pressure from their insurers. Responsibility for the report now rests with Flintshire CC.
