Hague: 'Determined abuse inquiry will happen'

William Hague has said that the government is "determined" that the child abuse inquiry will happen and will make it work.

Speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr he said: "There are so many deeply disturbing things for it to look into."

Referring to the replacement of Fiona Woolf, who stepped down as the chair of the government's child abuse inquiry he said: "I think what we've seen is a determination to get this inquiry going with somebody who would have the very highest standards leading it".
