This is the letter I received from Michael Gove, Secretary of State for Education, in response to the 50,000 signature petition I delivered to 10 Downing Street in support of Daniel’s Law. None of issues Mr Gove raises against Mandatory Reporting in Regulated Activities are credible – see my response for counter-arguments.



This is my response to Michael Gove’s assertion that Mandatory Reporting in Regulated Activities is ‘not the answer’. My letter is written with the support of the Mandate Now coalition of charities and is copied to supporting MPs, along with Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Secretary of State for Justice Chris Grayling as co-recipients of the petition for Daniel’s Law.
