A national review is now under way into contact the authorities had with Arthur, after social workers visited the boy at the family’s home two months before his death but found ‘no safeguarding concerns’.
In the House of Commons on Thursday, Commons Leader Jacob Rees-Mogg said it is ‘not good enough’ that authorities always say lessons will be learned from the cruel treatment of vulnerable children.
He told MPs he found it ‘almost impossible’ to read news stories about Arthur because it made him think of his own children.
그는 덧붙였다: ‘I have got this in my notes today that I am meant to say that ‘lessons will be learned’, but that is what we always say and it is not good enough. We need to protect little children.’
