Church acts on abuse report

21st September 2001 at 01:00
The Catholic Church is to create a national child-protection unit in response to Lord Nolan's final report on preventing child abuse within the church. It will co-ordinate the church's strategy in England and Wales by working with statutory bodies such as the Criminal Records Bureau to vet staff as well as liaise with dioceses. Each parish will also get a lay parish child protection representative to raise awareness of the problem and to act on national policy.
