But then he would say that wouldn’t he?


Mr Climbie, speaking from Abidjan on the Ivory Coast, said: "The government can give all the money it likes, but if the services do not communicate with each other, then it’s logical – the child protection system will always fail."
He said that when his daughter died the then health secretary, Alan Milburn, promised him and his wife that "her death would not be in vain".
