Daniel Pelka - supplementary report

There is an interesting article in the Coventry Observer that says that the second report into the death of Daniel Pelka from the Coventry Safeguarding Children Board will be available within the next two weeks.

The article also quotes the leader of Coventry City Council, Councillor Ann Lucas, as calling for a political debate on mandatory reporting.

I wonder where all this mandatory reporting stuff is coming from. Rather than clutching at the first idea that some group has conjured up, let’s wait for the report. Then let’s consider the evidence and only think about new laws when there is an overwhelming case for one and no alternative.
