Calls grow for UK inquiry into alleged Westminster child abuse

The sun sets behind Britain's Houses of Parliament in London, on April 15, 2010The British government faced growing calls on Sunday for a national inquiry into alleged child abuse that may have involved lawmakers in the 1970s and 1980s, after it emerged that 114 files relating to the accusations were missing. The allegations of child abusers in Westminster centre on a dossier given to the interior ministry in 1983 by Geoffrey Dickens, a Conservative MP and campaigner against child abuse. On Sunday, Britain’s Home Office revealed that in total, 114 files relating to child abuse allegations were “presumed destroyed, missing or not found”. The Home Secretary of the time Leon Brittan, forced to defend his handling of the Dickens dossier, said he had handed all relevant information onto officials for investigation.
