On 3 March, the Minister for Crime and Prevention, the Health Minister and I wrote to the chair of Oxfordshire Safeguarding Children Board, welcoming the publication of the Serious Case Review and outlining our response. The government has looked carefully at recent cases of child sexual exploitation with many similarities to the accounts of abuse in Oxfordshire. Our response is set out in ‘Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation’, which we published on 3 March. The government will continue to develop and deliver our responses to these serious and devastating crimes, and will consider carefully the lessons from cases as they emerge.
