I am posting about this subject again, in order to put the link to the petition and the reply which I received by email today.

"You recently signed the petition “We the British People Request a Public Inquiry into Grooming Gangs”:

On Tuesday 15 December the Home Secretary published a paper on the characteristics of group-based child sexual exploitation offending.

The Petitions Committee have also scheduled a debate on another petition that called for the report to be published. This will take place on Monday 18 January 2021 at 4.30pm in Westminster Hall. Tom Hunt MP, a member of the Petitions Committee, will open the debate. The Home Office will send a Minister to respond.

The paper published this week sets out the limited available evidence on the characteristics of offenders including how they operate, ethnicity, age, offender networks, as well as the context in which these crimes are often committed, along with implications for frontline responses and for policy development. 

You can read the Government’s announcement and the full paper here:

You can find the petition that will be debated here:

The transcript will be available the following day here:
