We will ensure that all interested organisations and the public will have the appropriate information and the options available to them so that they can give this issue full consideration during the consultation period. During the House

debates on the Serious Crime Bill we committed to a timetable of 18 months from Royal Assent to have completed the consultation on mandatory reporting of abuse of children and vulnerable adults.
