The Home Office is facing criticism over a review into the department’s handling of the 1980s Dickens dossier of paedophilia allegations.
Peter Wanless, chief executive of the NSPCC, was brought in to investigate in July after an internal Home Office review found no evidence of a dossier of suspected child abusers compiled by Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens in the 1980s.
The internal review also found that between 1979 and 1999 the department had “lost or destroyed” 114 files relating to child abuse.
Wanless has also reportedly failed to uncover the files or the dossier and is expected to criticise the Home Office’s record-keeping and archiving when he publishes his report later today.
He is expected to agree with the department’s findings that there is no evidence to suggest the missing files had been removed or destroyed inappropriately.
