Inquiry will now probe abuse fears
THE care of orphans at Smyllum Park is to be scrutinised by the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.
The Daughters of Charity have already given evidence to the inquiry in June.
They said claims of abuse were a “mystery” to them and that they had found no evidence children were mistreated or assaulted.
A second phase of the inquiry led by Lady Smith will begin on November 28 when two homes run by the Daughters of Charity – Smyllum Park and Bellevue House – will be examined.
