Church of England to review George Carey's official role

From The Guardian-

The Church of England is to review its decision to allow George Carey, the former archbishop of Canterbury, to resume an official church role following his evidence at the independent inquiry into child sexual abuse (IICSA) last week and criticism from survivors.

Steven Croft, the bishop of Oxford who issued Lord Carey with a “permission to officiate” (PTO) earlier this year, said: “We recognise that there will be renewed questions concerning Lord Carey’s permission to officiate following the IICSA hearings this week and I am sorry that my response to Lord Carey’s request for PTO in February this year caused additional distress to some survivors of abuse.”

Carey offered “uncritical support” for a bishop accused of sexual abuse in the 1990s, the inquiry heard.
