Extracts of a letter have emerged from Grahame Nicholls who was on the Chester Trades Council at the time Peter Morrison – PPS to Thatcher – was the local MP.
‘After the 1987 general election, around 1990, I attended a meeting
of Chester Labour party where we were informed by the agent,Christine
Russell, that Peter Morrison would not be standing in 1992. He had been
caught in the toilets at Crewe station with a 15 year old boy. A deal
was struck between Labour, the local Tories, the local press and the
police that if he stood down at the next election the matter would go no
Peter Morrison the MP for Chester
was, at the same time, named by a number of abused children from Bryn
Estyn and Bryn Alyn in North Wales as a man who had raped and
sexually abused them
This unending cover-up has to end
and everyone involved has to be brought to account for aiding and
abetting this most heinous of crimes.
In October 2012, Rod Richards, a former MP and ex-leader of the Welsh Conservatives, implicated Morrison in the North Wales child abuse scandal.
Between 1974 and 1990, up to 650 children from 40 children's homes
(such as Bryn Estyn in Wrexham), were sexually, physically and
emotionally abused. Richards said Morrison and another high-profile
Conservative were named in documents as regular and unexplained visitors
to the care homes.
