LOST IN CARE

The general background to the Inquiry
“When announcing the Government’s decision to appoint this Tribunal, the Secretary of State for Wales referred to the fact that it had been known for several years that serious sexual and physical abuse of children had taken place in homes managed by the former Clwyd County Council in the 1970s and 1980s. The Secretary of State mentioned, in particular, an intensive investigation by North Wales Police begun in 1991, in which about 2,600 statements had been obtained from individuals and which had resulted in eight prosecutions and seven convictions of former care workers, but he said that, nevertheless, speculation had continued in North Wales that the actual abuse was on a much greater scale than the convictions themselves suggested.”
