Police are currently investigating claims that the late George Thomas, Viscount Tonypandy, abused a nine-year-old boy – see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-28384108 . Here are a selection of clippings about Tonypandy’s campaigns as head of the National Children’s Home.
Viscount Tonypandy (formerly George Thomas MP, Speaker of the Commons) was appointed as chairman of National Children’s Home (NCH) in 1983. He led NCH’s ‘Children in Danger’ campaign – “to counter the effects of a continuing high level of physical and sexual abuse”, and joined a BBC radio crew looking for ‘waifs’ on the streets of Soho and Leicester Square.

George Thomas helped former Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe escape prosecution for ‘a homsexual offence against a minor’. Leo Abse MP boasted that he had threatened a young ‘delinquent’ who had allegedly tried to blackmail his close friend George Thomas.
