Children's Commissioner

I write in great appreciation of the article by Dr Jane H Roberts on Poverty, Violence and Child Protection in the BJGP.1

However, despite the excellence of the contribution, there appears to be one error – it is incorrect to assert the Sir Al Aynsley-Green is the UK's first Children's Commissioner. Professor Al Aynsley-Green was appointed in March 2005, whereas the UK's first Children's Commissioner was, in fact, the late Peter Clarke, Children's Commissioner for Wales, appointed on 1 March 2001.
