Inquiry publishes decision in respect of Medomsley case study

5 December 2019

The Inquiry has today (5 December) published a Determination in respect of the case study concerning Medomsley Youth Detention Centre, part of the Children in Custodial Institutions investigation.

The Chair of the Inquiry, Professor Alexis Jay OBE, made a provisional decision on 3 October 2019 that the Inquiry should no longer investigate events at Medomsley for a range of reasons.

She has since considered submissions made in response and concluded that the Inquiry will not investigate Medomsley. 

The full reasons for discontinuing this case study are set out in the Determination, along with the background to the investigation.
