Janet Boateng: Former chair of Lambeth social services committee


Janet Boateng’s name never comes up in articles about the paedophile ring that operated in Lambeth Council-run children’s homes between 1974 and 1994.

But maybe it should, because she was chair of Lambeth Council’s social services committee, who had overall responsibility for the running of children’s homes, and she personally unveiled the ‘new child care strategy’ at a time when Lambeth children’s homes were infested with paedophiles.

Janet Boateng is married to former Labour MP and now peer, Paul Boateng.

    Brian Johnston’s remark “The bowler’s Holding the batsman’s Willey” probably gave dear Paul a giddy fit!
