MP questions Smith 'cover up'

MP questions Smith 'cover up'
Rochdale’s MP has said the security services might have been involved in a “cover up” over allegations of sexual abuse against former Liberal MP Sir Cyril Smith.

At Home Office Questions in the House of Commons today, Simon Danczuk challenged Theresa May to investigate the accusations about Sir Cyril, first uncovered by PoliticsHome.

"[Will the Home Secretary say] What role, if any the Security Service played; and how the Government now intends getting to the bottom of what several former police officers are now referring to as 'a cover-up'?.”

It comes after the Crown Prosecution Service found its file on the Smith allegations dating from the 1960s.
