The following updates were made to the report on 4 December 2020:

  • Page 95, paragraph 7, the last sentence was amended to read “Millions of pounds have been paid in compensation and millions more in legal fees.” The change reflects the fact that the Catholic Insurance Service itself does not pay fees or compensation.
  • Page 99, paragraph 23, the final sentence was amended to read “These guidelines were published on 7 October 2020.”
  • Page 100, paragraph 32, the first sentence was amended to read “In the early 2000s, RC-A710 reported to the police that she had been abused as a child by Michael Hill, a former priest”.
  • Page 109, paragraph 6.4, the final sentence was amended to read “The revised guidelines were published on 7 October 2020.”

The following update was made to the report on 7 January 2021:

  • Page 130, the reference to Sister Jane Bertelsen is amended to read “Sister Jane Bertelsen, member of Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors”, removing an incorrect reference to her being a ‘former’ member.
