AROUND 50 Children per year die, while in the ‘care’ of Local Authorities; figures need to protect ‘identities’, says Edward Timpson MP

13 05 27 Ed TimpsonOn 20th May 2013, Madeleine Moon, MP for Bridgend asked the Secretary of State for Education:

how many children under 18 years old have died, while in care of local authorities in the last 10 years, in each local authority area; and if he will make a statement.

Edward Timpson, MP for Crewe and Nantwich, answered as Secretary of State for Education:

Information on the number of children who die while in the care of local authorities in England is shown in the following table. Figures are given for each English region for the year 2003 to 2012.

The number of children who die while in the care of local authorities in England is low, typically around 50 children per year. Due to these low numbers and to protect their identities, figures cannot be provided for each individual local authority.

This is one of the many reasons for campaigning a bit more vigorously:

  • are there criminal cases investigating each of these deaths? 
  • why does ‘confidentiality’ protect Local Authorities when a child dies?
  • are the parents compensated for losing their child to the local authorities who was supposed to take better care than the parents?

As a first step, I am writing to the President of the Family Courts, Justice Munby.

As a second step, I continue to promote our online petitions:

  1. Stop Forced Adoptions in the UK – aimed at UKIP and Parliaments in Brussels and London
  2. The Secrecy in Family Courts should be lifted Now – aimed at the UK Parliament and Judiciary

I also put an overview of online petitions together. Will you at least click and sign / like ? Or do you have other ideas for sharing this information?

Here’s the Government’s Policy on improving the adoption system and services for looked-after children, including Funding for foster care recruitment boost unveiled.

With thanks to Grandfather Phil Thompson who’s still fighting to get his grandchildren back!

    Death of children under the Care System(in the interests of the child) seem to have been rounded down. Count the TOTAL numbers that have died in care for all those years mentioned. There should be a Government investigation into this scandal.
    Well done Victims Unite for publishing this.

    Sabine, I want to bring a few things to your attention:

    1. The legal person – Under the existing corruption of the global system of law, our governments and judiciaries use this for total control and gives them the “authority” to steal children.

    2. Due to this corruption of law (hidden in plain sight), Scotland is now about to introduce a “State Minder” for each and every child born in the nation!!

    3. Further, it is that same “legal person” corruption, commenced at birth through your registration to the state, that then has the state simply “contract us in” to bailing out banks (too big to fail) and paying taxes WHICH NEED NOT EXIST! There is a solution to all of this which falls under the name of MPE (Mathematically Perfected Economy”. All of this corruption is able to be maintained DUE to the single basic corruption of the monetary system we live under. It is the usury of the entire banking system which allows the banking system to exert power over our governments and the legislation they produce. It is the legal person and monetary system together which keeps this all working. Deal with both problems and you eradicate this child stealing. If you do not attack the core then you are only focusing on symptoms. By doing that, the state/banks will be able to (and do) just “adjust” to give you the impression of change.

    Now, if you and your readers wish simply to ignore all of this then that is your prerogative but, I will emphasise, by doing so YOU WILL GET NOWHERE!

  4. South Wales has an extraordinary level of young suicides as well as deaths in care.
    Why would the South Wales SS be interested in 14 year old girls if it was not for sexploitation and masonic rituals.
    South Wales is notorious for non accidental injuries, sexploitation and experimentation of children in care.

    • The degree of HYPOCRISY is simply beyond belief, i.e. the PRETEXTS that the establishment uses to ‘do right’ when, in fact, they are actually criminals.

      I certainly wish I didn’t have to grow up to come to this realisation. But ‘conspiracy theory’ has changed into ‘conspiracy realism’ as a world view – thanks to the online world!

      Good point that suicides should be added to the death rates. Will point it out to Madeleine Moon MP!

      Did you see the article about the girl who ran away 405 times???

  5. Phil Thompson says:

    I would like to ask these questions. Have the parents of these dead children been informed.?. Were these children buried or cremated ?. If insurance was taken out on these children in care, WHO got the MONEY. Why protect their IDENTITIES when they are already dead. There is a shroud covering this murky child care Industry.

  6. JM says:

    that number 4_ look svery suspicous….how many more classed MIA? or soem other classification they won’t tell you about….?
    how many don’t even get issued with birth certs….if they never officially on the system they can never be officially disappeared? there’s certainly soemthing more sinister going on than just incompetence, neglect or any other way you can think of to ‘explain’ it…..they certainly after kids for soemthing…

    and why no confidentiality when they so tortured they throw temeslves of bridges (but where was the investigation?) but oh it’s classified when these children can’t even be independntly verified to have existed in first place…..who and why would you ‘trust’ any of these figures, especially when it’s well known they’re covering soemthing up? certainly far bigger than one or two satanist pedo gangs…

    Child suicides ! who decides it was suicide ? a coroner doing favors for
    his deviant friends, did the child die of sexual abuse ? penis up the rectum ?
    or some other weird unnatural ceremonial pagan act ?

    very convenient for the establishment to have pliable coroners ! the new
    Hillsborough inquiry will reveal how south yorks police, sheffield city council
    etc “magicked-up” a 15-15pm death time for dozens of victims !

    “All together now ! when I say die, all of you die at 3-15pm. cos. I am the
    coroner see ” and I get to write the report er er er I mean truth as my
    colleagues did for Dr. Shipman.

    Dishonesty and corruption is so well entrenched in the uk govnt. agencies
    fixed reports, court records etc. are standard procedure and they cannot
    see the truth because it is a complete stranger to govnt. civil servants

  9. Phil Thompson says:

    It would be very interesting to see the Coroners Reports as to the cause of death of such a large amount of children in CARE. If any other institution like Barnados had accumulated so many child deaths there would be an investigation. Just to make a point. If the MEDIA knew of a SINGLE drug death of a person it would be FRONT PAGE NEWS. About 60 DEATHS a year while children in the CARE of the STATE DIE and all details of them VANISH into unknown graves or ashes thrown into the wind. History of our prisons show that even hanged felons WERE BURIED in numbered graves. WHAT RULE and by whose RULE have caused these “children in care” to have their names OBLITERATED and their IDENTITIES hidden from even their BLOOD PARENTS.
    EPITAPH for these children who died while in the CARE SYSTEM of ENGLAND.
    YOUR LIFE and DEATH was meaningless. BECAUSE according to the STATE.
    The sheer simplicity of the reply “low numbers”. Need anyone say more as to the callous way in which this subject has been MISTREATED.

  10. Phil Thompson says:

    Dear Sabine, so accepting all that has been said. In SPITE of all the PROTESTATIONS of so many people against the actions of Social services.
    What has been DONE to confront social services in COURT.

    • It takes fearless grandparents like you, Phil!

      I know of one other fighter who begged SS to take him to court.

      But which court would condemn SS???

      • JM says:

        they’re not different, independent of each other…they’re the same! just like the train drivers, the camp guards, the soldiers and adolf hitler….all part of the same gang. why would you give them the satisfaction of giving them a running commentary of what they do….? they love that…

    In answer to someone who asked are parents informed if their child dies in care.Certainly not in this first case that I came across.We have certain evidence that a child taken at birth died on Day 2.This child should have been given antibiotic treatment in hospital hence the need for a cover-up .A good way to achieve this is for the child to be adopted that is on paper of course. DNA analysis by parents denied.

    Three names are required to achieve the cover-up. One the parents give the child in hospital, another to register the birth by Social Services and another used to register the death. In fact this particular Social Services Department is quite adept at forging certificates. They showed a Death Certificate to an elderly retired barrister who was refused a copy.The young person on the certificate miraculously appeared some months later after the parents had attended the young person’s Memorial Service.

    • The falsification of official documents continues to be the ‘red thread’ across all ‘white collar crimes’. But that is a term not adequately describing ‘child snatching’ with all its perfidiousness and cover-ups.

      MANY THANKS for this harrowing and horrific example!
