WHAT THE HECK IS THIS?????
JIMMY SAVILE INQUIRIES AND THE VICTIMS
Mr John Leech
That this House notes the inquiries into Jimmy Savile and others such as the Paedophile Information Exchange; believes that, although it is important to concentrate on ensuring that such cover-ups do not happen again, we should be concerned about the effect of such inquiries on the victims; and calls for consideration as to how the victims may be heard, if they wish, through for example anonymous statements, so that as part of the process they can feel supported and achieve closure given that Jimmy Savile will not be prosecuted.
