As plans to jail teachers, social workers and councillors who turn a blind eye to child abuse are unveiled by David Cameron today, John Mann MP has called for the measures to be extended to other professions.

 

The Bassetlaw MP commented: “Jail for covering up child abuse should not just be restricted to a few professions. This proposal is wholly inadequate.”

 

“Why should religious leaders, the police and political party whips in Westminster who have covered up abuse escape justice?”

 

“There should not be one rule for teachers and another for politicians. Those who turn a blind eye should be locked up, however influential they are.”

Bassetlaw MP John Mann has today called for the Government to appoint Commissioners to take over Oxfordshire County Council. The move comes as the Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children’s Board released its damning children’s services report into how the county’s child abuse victims were treated over a sixteen-year period. 

Mann commented: “Today’s report shows that the leadership at Oxfordshire County Council has let down young people who were abused.”


“More than 300 young people were the victims of abuse over a sixteen year period and it is vitally important that a thorough investigation is put in place to ascertain what went wrong.”


“In the meantime Commissioners should be appointed to take over the running of the Council’s children’s services and independently report back to the Government.”


“I was the first person to call for the Government to intervene in Rotherham and if it is good enough for Rotherham it is good enough for Oxfordshire.”

John Mann MP has written to the Home Secretary and the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police calling on them to urgently address the shortcomings in the UK’s anti-terrorist capabilities. The move comes as Theresa May refused today in Parliament to deny that there have been large cuts to the social media monitoring unit at the counter-terrorism squad in Scotland Yard.

The Bassetlaw MP commented:
“The large cut to the budget for the Met’s counter-terrorist social media monitoring unit endangers the UK as it allows more terrorist recruitment and organisation to go unnoticed.”


“I have written to Theresa May and the Metropolitan Police Commissioner today to urge them to prioritise counter-terrorism and ensure that budget cuts do not come at the price of the public’s safety.”


“At this time of serious concern over home-grown terrorism the Home Secretary should immediately restore the budget available to counter-terrorism forces in the UK.”
