New information on the Geoffrey Dickens dossiers

The late Tory MP, Geoffrey Dickens, gave two dossiers containing allegations of child sexual abuse to the former Home Secretary, Leon Brittan, in November 1983 and January 1984.

The November 1983 dossier contained ‘allegations of paedophilia in Buckingham Palace and the diplomatic and civil services’.

The January 1984 dossier contained information on the Paedophile Information Exchange, an organisation that campaigned to legalise sex with children, and gave details of ‘sex assaults at a children’s home’, and named prominent paedophiles including a ‘top television executive’.
