Question

It is clear from the evidence given by women at the Home Affairs Select Committee in February this year and recent media coverage of ex-undercover officers apologising for their actions, that intimate sexual relationships between undercover police officers and their targets took place. In the light of the clear statements made by the Commissioner and leading police chiefs that such relationships should not be authorised or permitted and that they are morally unacceptable, is it not time for the Commissioner to offer the victims of this abuse an unequivocal apology?
