Does conservative RP have a length difference between the second syllables?

Yes, in conservative RP 'candid" and "candied" were reported as the same by
someone in authority, I'm trying to remember who--Daniel Jones? I remember
an undergraduate being confused by Claude Wise (who I believe was from
Louisiana) who stated in one of his books that the two vowels of "city" were
same (capital eye).
