Home Secretary must declassify files connected to Westminster child abuse then we can all see them!
Helpful advise has come from Andrew Vallance who is the Secretary to the , Defence Press and Broadcasting Advisory Committee and a civil servant.
Thanks to the wonderful Cathy Fox, Andrew had inadvertently given away the game.
He writes "The destruction of routine files is a standard practice throughout government, industry and commerce and is just good housekeeping: it avoids having warehouses full of worthless paper stored at public expense. On the other hand, if files do contain very sensitive information they are always given very high security classifications. Before such highly classified files could be destroyed, they would be subject to special review procedures to ensure that files of historical significance were retained."
