Owen Glenn in setting up his foundation to combat child abuse has commissioned a truly independent inquiry to look into domestic violence.
He could have saved himself some coin and just picked up the phone and asked Mr B….followed up with a quick call to Tariana and Pita to ask about Maori child abuse:
Multi-millionaire Owen Glenn says he will launch an independent inquiry to establish why domestic violence and child abuse remain such major issues in New Zealand.
“The Glenn Inquiry” will be funded through the $80 million Mr Glenn pledged for his foundation in July to fight child abuse in New Zealand.
He said while the Government believes it is doing enough, he is alarmed at the growing statistics that show that there has not yet been any real change.
“This independent inquiry will not be limited to examining the problem and making recommendations for others to consider _ it will produce an evidence-based blueprint for the future, a model that, if adopted, could set New Zealand as a world leader in addressing child abuse and domestic violence.”
