According to the former member of parliament Giles Brandreth
The first, and only, official acknowledgement of my predecessor’s possible involvement in child abuse came my way in 1996, when William Hague, then Secretary of State for Wales, came up to me in the Commons to let me know that he had ordered an inquiry into allegations of child abuse in care homes in North Wales between 1974 and 1990 — and that Morrison’s name might feature in connection with the Bryn Estyn home in Wrexham, 12 miles from Chester.
‘Luckily’, though William Hague had the foresight to draw up the Terms of Reference for The Waterhouse inquiry so narrowly that no one from outside of the care homes faced justice.
But he knew! He knew and should now be asked how much he knew !
