MPs open biggest ever probe into FGM scandal
by Martin Bentham
An official inquiry into female genital mutilation is to be launched by one of Parliament's most powerful committees in a new attempt to end the barbaric practice in Britain.
The Commons Home Affairs Select Committee will investigate why no charges have been brought against "cutters" or others who arrange for girls to be mutilated.
A series of parliamentary hearings beginning in January will also probe whether NHS staff, schools and social workers are doing enough to tackle the problem.
