SIR - An excellent Comment article by Robbie Moore MP recently (T&A, December 2) on child sexual exploitation and safeguarding in Bradford.

It is surely blindingly obvious that nothing less than a full independent public inquiry must be set up into these scandals.

That our inept Labour Council leader Susan Hinchcliffe refuses to sanction such an inquiry makes one wonder just what it might uncover.
