My Lords, I know that the Minister shares my concern that if the allegations we have read in the newspapers or heard on radio programmes are correct, this is probably the most terrible act ever against children in the history of the United Kingdom. Will the Minister now thoroughly investigate this situation with all agencies, organisations, and Churches and report back to this House? Secondly, are Her Majesty's Government in continuous dialogue with the countries from which these children come?
