John Mann MP today confirmed that he has a copy of the ‘second Dickens file’ – the documents that were handed to Geoffrey Dickens MP on 18th January 1984.
Geoffrey Dickens later confirmed that he passed the file on to Leon Brittan.
Mann commented: “Two questions now arise. Firstly, why were the contents of the file not investigated? Secondly, why was the Prime Minister unable to find this file when he instigated the Wanless Review last year?
