Launching the report, the Education Committee Chair Graham Stuart MP said: "Our report is the culmination of a year-long inquiry. The recent revelations concerning the BBC and other institutions underline how important it is to get child protection right
The Committee also raised concerns about trafficked and asylum-seeking children. The reports calls for the responsibility for all children, including those involved in immigration cases, to be transferred to the Department for Education. "We also want the Government to review the impact of immigration policy upon child protection. As the report says, it would be outrageous if destitution were to be used as a weapon against children because of their immigration status", Mr Stuart added.
