Gordon Brown to make Child Migrants apology

The Prime Minister Gordon Brown is to make a formal apology on behalf of the British Government tomorrow (Wednesday) with regards to the Child Migrants Scheme, which saw thousands of children sent to Canada and Australia between the 1920s and 1967. Many were abused, treated as slave labour and sexually abused. In addition, an announcement on how those still alive will be supported in the future is also expected in the statement, to be given in Parliament.
