Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk, who has been campaigning for a public inquiry into child abuse, writes for ITV News.
As the Government announces an inquiry into the handling of a 80s dossier alleging child sex abuse by MPs, here are some of the main facts.
Thousands of people turned out as the Tour de France, passed through to Greater Manchester this weekend.
The Prime Minister's official spokesman said that he wants answers as "quickly as possible" over historic claims of child abuse by politicians at Westminster, but refused to confirm whether this would happen before the general election in May 2015.
"We want to make sure that answers are achieved as quickly as possible," Mr Cameron's spokesman said. "Clearly it needs to be a process that commands confidence and credibility as well."
The Prime Minister was said to have taken a "close personal and detailed interest" in the claims being made over the weekend and has held "extensive discussions" with his team.
The Isle of Man's Mark Cavendish's bid for the yellow jersey ended in a heap as he tumbled to the tarmac in a dramatic conclusion to the opening stage of the 101st Tour de France.
Cavendish was bidding for a 26th Tour stage win of his career in his mother's home town of Harrogate and a first yellow jersey, but collided with Australian Simon Gerrans in the final 500 metres and was seen clutching his shoulder and midrift as he rolled over the line.
Cavendish was later taken away from the Omega Pharma-Quick Step team area in an ambulance and transported to hospital.
The Home Office is to appoint a senior legal figure to carry out a fresh review into how a dossier alleging paedophile activity at Westminster in the 1980s was handled by the department.
Mark Sedwill, the Home Office permanent secretary, has written to Prime Minister David Cameron to say the new investigation would assess whether conclusions of an earlier review conducted last year "remain sound".
Mr Sedwill wrote: "To provide the additional reassurance you are seeking, particularly in view of information now in the public domain since the investigation's conclusion last year, I will engage a senior independent legal figure to assess whether the review's conclusions remain sound.
"I aim to make the appointment within the next week".

"The Prime Minister knows that there is a growing sense of public anger about allegations of historic abuse involving senior politicians and his statement today represents little more than a damage limitation exercise.
"It doesn't go far enough.
"The public has lost confidence in these kind of official reviews, which usually result in a whitewash.
"The only way to get to the bottom of this is a thorough public inquiry."
