We must know and understand

I couldn’t agree more with David Barry (For those abused it is never over, September 18).

I too was appalled, though not surprised, by the blasé attitude of Peter Ball, ex-bishop of Lewes.

Unfortunately, but predictably there is a growing lobby centred around though not confined to the Establishment, exerting pressure to have all such child abuse investigations – what they call witch hunts – shut down.

Witness how long it took to get the Goddard inquiry going.

These attempts must not be allowed to succeed.

Until we know and understand what has happened and expose those responsible, living and dead, we will struggle to cope with the present and fail to prevent in the future.
