Keith, who represents Leicester East, said: "I think De Montfort is a great university and it is very humbling to be chosen for this honorary degree."
"Baroness Butler-Sloss has had a long and distinguished career at the highest levels of this country's legal system" a spokesperson said
"That is why I am honoured to be leading this inquiry into whether public bodies and other non-state institutions have done enough to protect children from sexual abuse. I am assembling an independent panel of experts so that we can begin this important work as soon as possible."
"I think this will be good for the police themselves and for the public and give them even greater confidence in them. The overwhelmingly majority of police are decent and conscientious."
