The future of the controversial Jillings report into widespread child abuse in children's homes Clwyd, North Wales is likely to be decided this week. William Hague, the Secretary of State for Wales, is expected to meet council representatives on Thursday to discuss their concerns about finding a publishable version of the report.

He told the councils which took over from Clwyd County Council after Welsh local government reorganisation that he wanted them to find a way of publishing the report. Clwyd refused to publish the report and the successor councils told him of concern that if they make any changes to the report, which names a number of people, it will lose credibility. The study one of the most detailed inquiries into allegations of child abuse calls for a judicial inquiry into what went on in North Wales.
