Readers will know that the Jersey Child Abuse Committee of Inquiry was to due publish its report at the end of December 2016. Readers will also know that the publication was delayed until the first quarter of this year (2017) as we reported HERE.
We reported that the first delay, or the Press Release, seemed insensitive to Victims/Survivors and lacking in any information as to why it was delayed. Unfortunately this latest delay/Press Release fairs little better.
9 March 2017
"The Panel of the Independent Jersey Care Inquiry on Thursday (9 March) released the following statement:
"The Panel has received new information as part of Phase 3 of its work, in respect of recommendations for the future of Jersey's childcare system.
"The Panel has advised the States of Jersey that there will be a delay to the publication of the report pending examination of the new information as to whether it affects the recommendations we intend to make.
"We do not anticipate extensive delays. We will announce the date of the report's publication in due course and advise on the arrangements that will be in place for its launch."(END)
