More than 100 names have been put forward as possible heads of the Government’s child sex abuse inquiry, it has emerged.
Mark Sedwill, the Home Office’s top civil servant, confirmed that a final choice is unlikely to be put forward before January, however.
Mr Sedwill, the permanent secretary, said officials are already sifting the names put forward by victims’ groups and other sources.
The inquiry has had a troubled history since it was announced in July.
Baroness Butler-Sloss, the retired judge, had to resign shortly after taking the job over a potential conflict of interest.
It emerged after Lady Butler-Sloss’ appointment that her late brother, Sir Michael Havers, was attorney general in the 1980s and may have had to make legal decisions on child abuse allegations at the very time under examination by the new inquiry.
Fiona Woolf, the second person to be appointed, resigned last month.
The City lawyer, who is also Lord Mayor of London, stepped down after details emerged of her links with Lord Brittan of Spennithorne, who as Leon Brittan was home secretary in the Eighties.
Mr Sedwill told the Commons’ home affairs select committee: “We have, I think, suggestions of over 100 names. We will work our way through those.”
He added that the process was unlikely to be complete before the New Year, when the name will go to the committee for approval.
