From Mrs M. Meyer
Sir, - Regarding the Cahill report (News, 7 November), I find
Chancellor Gau's comments offensive, in as much as he implies that
a member of the House of Lords deserves preferential treatment.
I have great respect for Lord Hope, and have met him on several
occasions, but if his actions have been called into question, then
thorough investigation is required, as would be the case of any
individual, irrespective of "position".
At the moment, inquiries are being made of people in high
places, and it is, therefore, wrong that the C of E or any
religious body should feel that it can be exempt from in-depth
investigation, however unpleasant it may be. It is what the laity
expect of their Church.
