Child protection merger would dilute expertise

15th October 2010 at 01:00

I have searched last Friday's paper for mention of the most serious issue of merging the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre with the National Crime Agency, with no luck. It should not be diluted. Jim Gamble, its chief executive, is an important champion for children. Only those who do not understand the vulnerability of children could contemplate accepting his resignation.
