William Hague stifled 1996 paedophile report, says 'victim'
A man who claims to have been abused as a boy by a senior Conservative has accused William Hague of "stifling" a 1997 paedophile inquiry by preventing it from examining claims beyond the care system in north Wales.
He said: "These terms of reference sti-fled the inquiry and meant that my allegations and others were not fully investigated. Mr Hague has some questions to answer about the terms of reference of the report."
A spokesman for Mr Hague said: "The terms of reference were proposed by officials in the Welsh Office and agreed by ministers and widely supported by Parliament. There were no serious representations from MPs or the judge to challenge them at any time."
Mr Messham made allegations about the senior Tory to Sir Ronald's inquiry but the judge said at the time he thought they were in the "realm of fantasy".
NWN: So is this why he has resigned from the tories ? My God Thatchers regime was stuffed full with paedophiles !
