McGuinness calls for wider protection for young people and vulnerable adults

18 December, 2003


Former Education Minister, Sinn Féin MP Martin McGuinness in light of emerging evidence in the Soham cases has said that there must be effective protection of young people and vulnerable adults.

Mr McGuinness said:

"It is vital that there is effective vetting of people working in areas that brings them into contact with young people or vulnerable adults, particularly in instances were they might be in a position of authority or influence.

"This need to occur across the island of Ireland, throughout these islands and indeed throughout Europe and worldwide." ENDS
