Anglican Church welcomes state abuse inquiry expansion

From New Zealand-

The Anglican Church is welcoming the Government's expansion of its inquiry into state care abuse to include churches.

Archbishop of the Anglican Church Philip Richardson says they asked the Government to be included in the inquiry, and are pleased it listened.

He says one of the key passages in the New Testament is "the truth will set you free" - and he says they need that.

Richardson told Larry Williams a robust inquiry will be good for abuse survivors, for the Church, and for society as a whole.

"The only of dealing with dark chapters is to bring some light on that. We need to participate in that."
