    Question Help! A news report headline.

    "Senate inquiry into Nauru child abuse allegations likely after crossbenchers indicate support."

    Can anyone help me restore the full sentence of this headline? I don't quite understand the "likely" part. Thank you!

    Re: Help! A news report headline.

    Welcome to the forum.

    A Senate inquiry into the Nauru child abuse allegations is likely after [some] crossbenchers indicate their support [for the inquiry].


    The inquiry is now likely to happen as a result of the crossbenchers' support for it.
    It is likely that there will be a Senate inquiry ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
