The conclusions on the facts in a report following a public statutory inquiry into failures by child protection agencies did not bind a care standards tribunal, which was required by statute to reach its own conclusions on the matters in issue when determining whether a person was unsuitable to work with children. A tribunal could depart from the conclusions in the inquiry report if the tribunal showed that there was a justifiable basis for the view it had reached, having regard to the burden and standard of proof.
