Today the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse has published its latest case study report, which can be found at www.iicsa.org.uk.

This report relates to Ealing Abbey and St Benedict’s School in the Inquiry’s Roman Catholic Church investigation. I pay tribute to the strength and courage of the victims and survivors who have shared their experiences to ensure the Inquiry can deliver its vital work.

Government will review this report and consider how to respond to its content in due course.

I would like to thank Professor Jay and her Panel for their continued work to uncover the truth, expose what went wrong in the past and to learn the lessons for the future.
