Relatively speaking

September 2, 2005

On what grounds could "lecturer's leaders" object to the proper appointment of staff because they are related to existing staff ("Anger at Brunel over recruits' family ties", August 26)? I have always found that appointment committees faced with staff relations know they have to be especially rigorous. As a former colleague of those concerned, I would vouch for their integrity. I fear that this is all part of another agenda.
