Bridget Phillipson comments on launch of a national review following the murder of Arthur Laninjo-Hughes

Bridget Phillipson MP, Labour’s Shadow Education Secretary, commenting on the Government launching a national review and local inspection following the murder of Arthur Laninjo-Hughes, said:

“Arthur’s murder has horrified the nation – it is right that the Government conducts a national inquiry alongside the local safeguarding review.

“Ministers should set out the scope of this review in full as soon as possible.

“No stone should be left unturned in uncovering why Arthur was allowed to be subjected to such appalling cruelty, and to ensure that no other vulnerable child will ever be the victim of such a monstrous crime.”
