One of the allegations being investigated by the IPCC refers to Dolphin Square, the exclusive apartment block near the Houses of Parliament where its claimed sex parties involving under-age boys have taken place.
Among the other allegations are claims an abuse victim's statement had been altered to omit the name of a senior politician implicated in the crime.
Another allegation claims no action was taken over the discovery of a document listing MPs and police officers involved in a paedophile ring.
The 14 referrals, which span the 1970s and 2000s, being investigated by the Independent Police Complaints Commission are:
- An allegation of a potential cover up around failures to properly investigate child sex abuse offences in south London and further information about criminal allegations against a politician being dropped
- An allegation that an investigation involving a proactive operation targeting young men in Dolphin Square was stopped because officers were too near prominent people
- An allegation that a document was found at an address of a paedophile that originated from the Houses of Parliament listing a number of highly prominent individuals (MPs and senior police officers) as being involved in a paedophile ring and no further action was taken
- An allegation that an account provided by an abuse victim had been altered to omit the name of a senior politician
- An allegation that an investigation into a paedophile ring, in which a number of people were convicted, did not take action in relation to other more prominent individuals
- Allegations that a politician had spoken with a senior Met Police officer and demanded no action was taken regarding a paedophile ring and boys being procured and supplied to prominent persons in Westminster in the 1970s
- An allegation that in the late 1970s a surveillance operation that gathered intelligence on a politician being involved in paedophile activities was closed down by a senior Met Police officer
- An allegation that a dossier of allegations against senior figures and politicians involved in child abuse were taken by Special Branch officers
- Allegations that a surveillance operation of a child abuse ring was subsequently shut down due to high profile people being involved
- Allegations of child sex abuse against a senior politician and a subsequent cover-up of his crimes
- Allegations that during a sexual abuse investigation a senior officer instructed the investigation be halted and that that order had come from 'up high' in the Met
- An allegation of a conspiracy within the Met to prevent the prosecution of a politician suspected of offences
- Allegations against a former senior Met Police officer regarding child sex abuse and that further members of the establishment including judges were involved. It is claimed that no further action was taken
- An allegation that police officers sexually abused a boy and carried out surveillance on him. There are further allegations of financial corruption in a London borough police force.
The IPCC said it will decide at a later date whether or not to investigate a further two Met referrals which are "of a similar nature".
