Dear Benjamin Wood,

What I mean by substantiated child abuse cases are those who have been taken through the criminal justice system & found guilty of a child abuse offence. What I mean by child is those under the age of 18 years of age. What I want is information on the perpetrators of child abuse. I am not asking for any information about the child victims.

Yours Sincerely

David Mortimer

Dear Benjamin Wood,

Please will you kindly tell me:

(a) the council authority, council officer and the name of that officer, who decides on what information on child neglect and abuse is collected & held by your council;

(b) the means by which that person is held to account by a member of the public for their performance in discharging that public function;

(c) the council authority, the council officer and the name of that officer, responsible for your child protection policies;

(d) the means by which that person is held to account by a member of the public for their performance in discharging that public function;

(e) how the function in (c) is properly discharged and held accountable for policies which would best effectively protect children from abuse if the person referred to in (a) does not collect any information on child abuse perpetratration?"

Yours Sincerely

David Mortimer

Dear Mr. Mortimer,

Unfortunately we do not hold retrievable information regarding criminal convictions of perpetrators of child abuse.

Kind regards

Benjamin Wood

Dear Mr. Mortimer,

Would you be able to refine your question please? Currently the question is very broad so difficult to answer directly. We dont collect substantiated child abuse statistics as "substantiated" may mean different things. We also dont tend to report on types of abuse seperately so it would take over 18 hours to compile the information. If you are able to narrow the scope of your question I may be able to help. We also publish much of this information nationally on the Department for Education's website which may be of assistance?

Kind regards

Benjamin Wood

Who do local authorities protect children from? 28th December 2013

Surely there is every good reason for all the groups in the UK to unite & put child protection issues first' given they are our future & child protection issues are given paramount consideration.
