In response, Margaret Humphreys, International Director of the Child Migrants Trust says:
"Gordon Brown apologised to all former Child Migrants and their families in 2010 on behalf of the nation. After apology must surely follow truth and justice.
The British Child Migration Schemes cast a very long, dark shadow over the lives of thousands of young British children, their families and our country too.
At last, their testimony will be given to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).
Child Migrants have waited all their lives for this opportunity to bear witness to their Country. We must surely listen, learn lessons and deliver justice."
