I think the most surprising thing about this is that this file dates from 1986, five years before the Frank Beck trial and the standing ovation and support Greville Janner received in the House of Commons following Beck’s conviction.
But then the “credible” allegations of indecent assault and buggery against minors outlined by the CPS in its statement date back to 1969.
The file itself is of course missing!
Wanless Report Annex I: 114 File Schedule

A file on Lord Greville Janner is among 114 dossiers on child sex abuse that have gone missing from the Home Office.
Details of the 1986 Janner file are buried in the appendix to the Wanless report, which investigated the missing sex abuse dossiers.
The report, published in November, studied claims that the 114 files disappeared as part of an Establishment cover-up…
… The title of the lost Janner file – “Greville Janner MP [redacted] re evidence in child abuse cases” – is thought to have concealed the name of a second person. It was recorded as “not found” and “presumed transferred to MoJ [Ministry of Justice] but not located”.
