Rev Dr David Clements Statement on Passing of Sir Anthony Hart

The Rev. Dr. David Clements, Chair of the Council on Social Responsibility, of the Methodist Church in Ireland has issued the following Statement on hearing of the death of Sir Anthony Hart:

"The Methodist Church in Ireland is deeply sorry to hear of the death of Sir Anthony Hart and offers its deepest sympathy and prayerful support to his widow and family circle. Sir Anthony, a man of great integrity, did an excellent job in his chairmanship of the Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry and so it would therefore be a fitting tribute to his memory, if the compensation scheme which his report recommended is implemented as soon as possible"
