My request is as follows:
* Please disclose the results of a scoping exercise carried out by the force in relation to allegations that the force investigated claims Cyril Smith had sex with a young man in a public toilet in Birmingham in the 1980s. The claims were made in the following newspaper story in August
I understand the force scoped the allegations and my request is for the results of that scoping exercise in whatever format it is held.
* Please disclose the name of the scoping exercise.
* Please provide copies of any referrals made by the force to the IPCC in relation to Cyril Smith.
I am writing to inform you that we have searched our Public Protection Unit’s records and our Command Team’s crime portfolio and we can find no trace of any information.
