Question

The whistleblower Peter Francis and the eight women taking legal action against the Metropolitan Police Service for deceiving them into forming long term intimate relationships have refused to co-operate with Operation Herne and will only speak to a judge-led public inquiry. Are you still confident in the investigation is worth the time and resources?

The inquiry is far wider in scope than the allegations of Francis and the eight women taking civil action, with some matters subject of IPCC supervision and CPS consideration. The investigation must be able to fully investigate claims of potential criminality or misconduct.
