Ruth Kelly Secretary of State for Education and Skills, was misinformed. No such investigation is being undertaken by the Metropolitan Police or by Social Services.
The Rt. Hon. Ruth Kelly said in the House of Commons last week (as reported by Hansard - The Official Record of Parliament):
The Department has been made aware of allegations of abuse by teachers at St. James Independent Schools for Boys between 1975 and 1985. The matter is currently under investigation by Richmond-upon-Thames social services department and the Metropolitan police. We are liaising with them and will consider what, if any, action is required once their investigation has been completed.
Who do you Believe? Ruth Kelly or David Boddy?
