My Lords, initial inquiries made by the team investigating the "Adam" murder found that a number of African boys had not returned to school following the summer break in 2001. The Metropolitan Police has stated clearly that it has no evidence that any of these boys have come to any harm. There were no allegations from either families or schools that the welfare of these children was at risk.
