All dead of course


Key Westminster figures from the 1970s and 1980s have been named in a series of Government child abuse documents.
After months of requests from Sky News the Government has revealed that papers exist that relate to Margaret Thatcher's former parliamentary secretary the late Sir Peter Morrison, former Home Secretary the late Leon Brittan, former diplomat the late Sir Peter Hayman and former minister the late Sir William van Straubenzee.
In January Sky News forced the Government to release the details of a file prepared for Mrs Thatcher's office on the 'unnatural sexual' behaviours of one of the men Sir Peter Hayman.
The new batch of file names reveal there were further Government papers relating to the former MI6 man and career diplomat.
The revelation comes after the Wanless and Whittam review of Government papers last year that failed to find many of the relevant abuse files held by Government departments.
The Cabinet Office apologised for the 'flaw' in the way they responded to the request for information.
Permanent Secretary Richard Heaton wrote to Whittam and Wanless in May saying: " I deeply regret that the Cabinet Office failed to identify the papers in question when you first asked for them."
The papers also reveal that the Kincora children's home in Northern Ireland was at the heart of further correspondence involving the security services.
Allegations of abuse and trafficking of children to England have centred on the home in Belfast.
The papers reveal former intelligence officer Colin Wallace raised concerns about abuse at Kincora - the papers had been stored by the Cabinet Office.
The contents of the papers have still not been revealed but have been shared with the police and will be passed to the Child Abuse Inquiry led by Justice Lowell Goddard.
