On 5 November 2012, the Prime Minister announced the establishment of an independent review into the scope and conduct of Sir Ronald Waterhouse’s Tribunal of Inquiry into allegations of child abuse in care homes in Clwyd and Gwynedd between 1974 and 1990.

On 8 November 2012, the then-Secretary of State for Justice announced this review would be headed by Mrs Justice Macur DBE, a High Court Judge of the Family Division.

Her terms of reference were:

To review the scope of Waterhouse inquiry, and whether any specific allegations of child abuse falling within the terms of reference were not investigated by the Inquiry, and to make recommendations to the Secretary of State for Justice and Secretary of State for Wales.

Lady Justice Macur provided her report to the Secretary of State for Justice and the Secretary of State for Wales on 10 December 2015. The redacted report was laid before Parliament on 17 March 2016. A revised version of the redacted report was laid before Parliament on 5 December 2017 with references to Gordon Anglesea reinstated, following Anglesea’s death in December 2016.
