Ms Oona King

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Department for Constitutional Affairs if he will introduce legislation to implement the recommendations by the Law Commission on revision of the law of limitation in relation to claims for child sexual abuse. [132087]

Mr. Lammy

In July 2002, the Government announced their acceptance in principle of the recommendations for reform of the 1980 Act contained in the Law Commission report, "Limitation of Actions", subject to further consideration of certain aspects. This further consideration will include the recommendations relating to claims for child sexual abuse. Legislation will be introduced to implement those recommendations which are accepted when an opportunity arises.
