"$2.8m in new funding to reduce child abuse is great news," said Roger McClay Commissioner for Children today. "All the talk, anguish and protestation seems worthwhile when real responses such as this are forthcoming" he said.

Mr McClay was commenting on yesterday's announcement that the Government is investing $2.8m over three years in community-based child abuse and family violence community education programmes.
