Letter to the Rochdale Observer:

Dear Editor of the Rochdale Observer,

The now delayed report by Dame Janet Smith was compiled after the
investigation interviewed 375 witnesses in connection with the activities of Jimmy Savile and more than a 100 in connection with Stuart Hall. And how many men who claimed to have been abused by Cyril Smith after the closure of Cambridge House did Matthew Baker and Simon Danczuk
interview before publishing their book 'Smile for the Camera'? We don't know, because Mr Danczuk refuses to tell us.

If Dame Janet Smith had chosen to adopt the same tactic how much faith would the press and public have in the impartiality and accuracy of her report? Is it not time that we held Mr Baker and Mr Danczuk to the same standard?

Les May
