A review into a missing dossier alleging paedophile activity in Westminster in the 1980s is insufficient by itself, the shadow home secretary said, after the Home Office revealed it would appoint a senior legal expert to carry out a fresh review. Yvette Cooper said:
Mark Sedwell is right to seek an expert from the legal profession to lead the review into how the Home Office allowed a dossier alleging paedophile activity in Westminster to go missing. If the public are to have any confidence in the findings of the investigation it needs to be thorough and independent.
However, this review alone is still not sufficient. The Home Secretary must now publish the review that was conducted in 2013.
The MP who raised the claims that a paedophile ring operated in Westminster during the 1980s said new allegations have now come to light.
Lord Brittan has defended his handling of a dossier alleging paedophile activity in Westminster when he was home secretary in the 1980s.
A 1980s dossier claiming paedophile activity at Westminster may have mysteriously gone missing but the questions still remain.
