This chapter draws together the different threads and answers some of the questions with which this book began. In particular, it sets out three broad areas of inquiry through which the particular scandals recounted here were to be interrogated: the anatomy of the welfare scandal itself, the Committee of Inquiry itself as a response to scandal, and the impact that Inquiries might make on future social policy. The chapter also discusses what differentiates scandals in the field of social-welfare practice and policy from other scandalous events, along with claims making and counter-claims making, scandal inflation, scandal fatigue, and scandal saturation.

Keywords:   Committee of Inquiry, scandals, social welfare, social policy, claims making, counter-claims making, scandal inflation, scandal fatigue, scandal saturation
