"Butler-Sloss stands down from abuse probe
Monday 14 July 2014
Baroness Butler-Sloss has stepped down as chair of an inquiry into allegations of historic child sex abuse within the establishment, Downing Street has announced.

The Prime Minister's official spokesman said the decision to stand down was entirely Lady Butler-Sloss's.

Her departure comes after the former judge's appointment became the centre of controversy because her brother Sir Michael Havers, who was attorney general and lord chancellor in the 1980s, is alleged to have tried to prevent ex-MP Geoffrey Dickens airing claims about child abuse in Parliament.

Critics have suggested that victims of child sex abuse would not have confidence in an inquiry led by someone from the heart of the establishment.

It is understood that Lady Butler-Sloss informed the Home Office of her decision to step down over the weekend, after which she spoke to Home Secretary Theresa May.

The process of selecting a replacement is beginning immediately, but a new name is not expected to be announced for some days.

David Cameron's spokesman said: "She has taken the decision to step down as chair of the panel inquiry. It is entirely her decision.

"The Government's view hasn't changed, that she would have done a first-class job as chair. The reasons for her appointment still absolutely stand in terms of her professional expertise and her integrity, which I don't think has been questioned from any quarter whatsoever, and rightly so."

In a statement, Lady Butler-Sloss acknowledged that she "did not sufficiently consider" whether her family links would cause difficulties in the inquiry." Cotninues.
