bbcr4 'Sunday' 10/3/19 - Christopher Pearson Chair of the National Catholic Safeguarding Commission stating that in England and Wales the Church has mandatory reporting - except it doesn't.

Please note Mr Pearson says that 'we are expected to refer any allegation of abuse to the statutory authorities.' N.B. he is correct to say it is (professionally) expected but it is certainly not mandatory either by the Catholic Church or in statutory legislation.
