Mark Pritchard condemns delays by Telford & Wrekin Council in setting up an inquiry into child grooming in the borough

3rd December 2018

Speaking in Home Office Questions in the House of Commons, Mark condemns delays by Telford and Wrekin Council in setting up and independent inquiry into child grooming in the borough and calls on the council to get on with it.

On the wider issue of child grooming, does the Home Secretary agree that the delays by Telford and Wrekin Council in setting up an independent inquiry into the child grooming that has gone on in that borough is completely unacceptable and that it needs to get on with it for the victims and the victims’ families?

I strongly agree with my hon. Friend. It is very unfortunate that the inquiry has been delayed; it is very important in the interests of justice and especially for those victims and their families, and I hope the council just gets on with it.
