The Metropolitan Police have issued a statement in response to today's publication of the IPCC report into the involvement and actions of Assistant Commissioner John Yates in the recruitment process for the daughter of Neil Wallis:
The IPCC carried out an independent investigation into the involvement and actions of Assistant Commissioner John Yates in the recruitment process for the daughter of Neil Wallis and the MPS accepts its findings.
As the IPCC has previously made clear, it found no evidence of misconduct that would justify disciplinary proceedings in relation to allegations about forwarding a CV for the purposes of employment at the MPS.
The report recommends that we review our practices in relation to senior staff who refer friends and relatives to our Human Resources department for appointment, attachment and holiday employment.
The MPS has been the subject of much external scrutiny in recent months and the review recommended by the IPCC will form part of our wider response in taking forward the emerging issues and advice such as that from Elizabeth Filkin and the Leveson Inquiry.
