I met her at the Police Staff College, Bramshill, in 1978 and found her very charming and articulate. At the time I was with the Home Office and going through the same kind of hellish experience, taking early retirement at the end of 1982. I did not have the courage of Ms Halford to take the matter to an industrial tribunal, but if I had she might have been spared much of her misery.
I feel sure that she has helped future generations of career women, especially those in the police and at the Home Office, by highlighting the experiences to which she has been subjected.
