Responding to evidence given today by Jim Gamble, chief executive of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre, the shadow home secretary Ed Balls said:
“I know from the work I did with Jim Gamble and CEOP as Children’s Secretary that his expertise will be badly missed.
“And I share the serious concerns of experts and campaigners like Sara Payne that losing a pro-active and dedicated centre will undermine our ability to tackle the exploitation and abuse of children.
“CEOP is more than just a quango, as the Home Secretary dismissively called it last week. It should have the operational independence it needs to do the job and not be subsumed into the new National Crime Agency.
The Home Secretary must think again.”
THESE PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF THE UP AND COMING COURT CASE NOVEMBER 11TH AND 12th....PLUS THE OBVIOUS FACT MCCANNS AND GAMBLE ARE JOINED AT THE HIP.
