Sir Cyril Smith: Cameron accused of 'compounding cover up' over sex abuse David Cameron and senior ministers have been accused of “compounding the cover up” over sex abuse allegations about Sir Cyril Smith, the late Liberal Democrat MP, by failing to produce a police dossier allegedly seized by MI5.
Last week Tony Robinson, a special branch officer with Lancashire Police in the 1970s, told The Daily Telegraph he had seen a dossier "thick" with allegations from boys claiming they had been abused by Sir Cyril.
He said that after taking the file out of the safe at special branch headquarters in Hutton, Preston, he was contacted by an officer from MI5 who told him it needed to be sent to London.
Simon Danczuk, the Labour MP for Rochdale, today asked the Prime Minister to publish any "police files relating to Smith".
The Prime Minister declined to answer directly, and instead pointed to an investigation which has been opened by Greater Manchester Police which will examine allegations dating back to 1974.
David Cameron, the Prime Minister, said: “I understand that Greater Manchester Police have today confirmed that they will now investigate any allegations of sexual abuse that happened from 1974.
