A number of questions arise from the presentation given by Mr Graham Archer (Director of Children’s Social Care, Learning and Development – Department for Education) on the topic of ‘Existing Reporting Obligations in England and Wales’. With delegates not being permitted to ask questions of each other, Mandate Now and other signatories have written to IICSA to seek answers about a number of the ‘obligations’ to which Mr Archer alluded. We hope the inquiry asks and receives answers to these matters well in advance of MR Seminar (2) scheduled for 30/4/18, and makes them publicly available.
Signatories to the letter :
- Phil Johnson Chair, MACSAS – Minister and Clergy Sexual Abuse Survivors
- Fay Maxted OBE, CEO The Survivors Trust
- Siobhan Pyburn, Founder Beam Project
- Alex Renton, Investigative Writer
- Jonathan West, Core Participant Roman Catholic Investigation
Mandate Now made two submissions to IICSA’s MR seminar which are available by following this link.

On the 26th October IICSA sent the following reply to our letter. Of particular note is the fourth paragraph. It’s unfortunate that none of our questions, with which IICSA are so closely aligned, were asked at the MR seminar after Mr Archer’s presentation.
