Quotes

Maxine Watson, BBC Commissioning Editor, said: "This film offers a unique insight into what played out behind the scenes in the tragic case of Baby P Henry Singer has managed to go beyond the tabloid frenzy and tell a very human story."
The letter ends: "Our view is that you will need some additional capacity to engage fully in these next steps and limited funding will be available for this purpose, as well as for other reasonable set-up costs."
Written by Edward Timpson MP, it said: "The Secretary of State and I have therefore decided that the most effective and appropriate way of ensuring high quality services for children and families in Slough is to establish an independent trust to deliver services on behalf of the council."
