Subject: The government of Sir Edward Heath
Dear Lord Hall,
A few months ago, I sent a letter addressed to you to your Salford HQ.
It referred to the BBC TV interview, first broadcast in 1995, with the Chief Whip in Sir Edward`s government, Tim Fortescue. In it, he described how Conservative MPs who had admitted to him of their sexual abuse of small boys, were covertly protected from any police investigation in return for those involved “doing as they were told.” Hence, the existence of dangerous predators was being deliberately concealed from police officers, in order to facilitate the use of political blackmail.
From the interview, it appears that the plight of the defenceless children was not regarded as of significant importance by Sir Edward and his colleagues.
In 2014, whilst you were in situ as Director General, the interview was broadcast again.
All I asked in my letter was confirmation that a copy of this crucial interview had been passed by the BBC to the Inquiry into the Sexual Abuse of Children.
I was somewhat disappointed to receive a bland response much later from a private company describing my query as a complaint, which clearly is not the case.
In order to avoid any misunderstanding, could you please address my simple query as promptly as possible?
