Independent Inquiry in to Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA)

On 12 March 2015 the Home Secretary established the Independent Inquiry in Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA).  Later on in 2015 Leicestershire County Council received a letter from the Inquiry informing the chief executive of the intention to include the Leicestershire County council in those inquires.  Included within that letter was information on the categories of documents that the council was required to retain until further notice, terms of reference, the scope and the principles of the inquiry.  This may have an implication for some information sets that have reached their disposal date.
