These are grave allegations and the Home Secretary and Prime Minister must address them urgently
15 Oct 2016Diane Abbott MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, in response to reports on Dame Lowell Goddard and the abuse inquiry, said:
“These are grave allegations and the Home Secretary and Prime Minister must address them urgently.
"Despite being given every reason not to trust the establishment, the victims of child sex abuse had put their faith in this inquiry. We cannot afford to lose their trust again.
"We must be given an assurance that there was no attempt to cover the accusations made about Judge Goddard. Because if true, it would mean that the Home Secretary knowingly put at risk the integrity of the entire inquiry.”
