The Anglican and Catholic churches and “certain people of public prominence associated with Westminster” will be investigated by the independent abuse inquiry, it has been announced.
Justice Lowell Goddard, who is leading the investigation, also said councils in Lambeth, Nottinghamshire and Rochdale will be examined.
She set out 12 different areas which will come under scrutiny.
Justice Goddard said: “The investigation will focus on high-profile allegations of child sexual abuse involving current or former members of parliament, senior civil servants, government advisers and members of intelligence and security agencies.
“It will consider allegations of cover up and conspiracy and review the adequacy of law enforcement responses to these allegations.”
