MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
Lynne Featherstone, candidate for Hornsey and Wood Green, comments on the Sharon Shoesmith verdict:
“After what happened to Baby Peter, Sharon Shoesmith’s position was totally untenable – and rightly so.
“From this case we see further evidence that the culture of cover up and secrecy goes right to the top of the Labour government. Key facts have only come to light because of this court case, facts that the public are entitled to know. More than ever it shows the urgent need for a full public enquiry to ensure that we get to the bottom of the failure to protect Baby Peter.”
Nevres Kemal, Haringey Children’s Services whistleblower and Liberal Democrat candidate for Noel Park in Haringey, adds:
“I am standing for election against the Council who failed to protect Baby Pater and to help end the failure in Children’s Services.”
