Steve O’Connell AM: Yes. I shall try to be slightly more pointed. Assembly Member Arbour has mentioned the work of the Police and Crime Committee over a period of months responding to witnesses and representations from the good people of Tower Hamlets, including the very good Mayor, John Biggs. There has been reference to the fact that the Deputy Mayor Linden, when scrutinised by the Committee, appeared to be content with the investigations of the police within Tower Hamlets.
Can I ask you, Mr Mayor, if you had not received or if Sophie Linden (Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime) had not received the letter from the Chairman of the Police and Crime Committee - me - on 9 March  that you requested you call in the HMIC, would you have done so?
