People will be "disappointed and deflated" by the contents of resignation letters from the Child Sex Abuse inquiry, due to be published tomorrow, says a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee.

Letters from lawyers who resigned from the Child Sex Abuse inquiry written to the Home Affairs Select Committee are due to be published tomorrow, revealing why they left. 

Member of Home Affairs Select committee, and former acting chair Tim Loughton told Julia Hartley-Brewer that "some people might be a little bit disappointed and deflated" by the contents of the letters, as he's "read an awful lot in the papers about what’s in these letters", which he himself was dismayed by.

He added: "I have great confidence in Alexis Jay, [but] I think [the inquiry] could be a bit more upfront and a bit more transparent in giving assurances to people."
