No figure on Jersey Anglican diocese inquiries cost

Jersey's Anglican diocese has said it cannot say yet how much inquiries into how its churches protect vulnerable people will cost.

Bishop of Winchester, the Rt Rev Tim Dakin, has ordered two inquiries into the alleged mishandling of a complaint from a parishioner to the dean.

The Very Reverend Robert Key has been suspended over claims he mishandled the complaint made in 2008.

One inquiry will be led by a retired bishop, the other by a UK judge.

A spokesman for the diocese said it was impossible to calculate the costs of the inquiries until they were finished, but the money would be covered by church funds.

The former Bishop of Chelmsford, the Right Reverend John Gladwin, and Dame Heather Steel are leading the inquiries.
