In an article published on 29 March 2009 ("Labour Peer in standards inquiry") it was suggested that Brian Healy, a former New Scotland Yard detective, had acted improperly in his handling of a matter for a prominent overseas politician and in the conduct of investigations for other clients. We accept that there was no truth in these allegations. We apologise to Mr Healy for any suggestion to the contrary.
