More evidence that the Home Office funded the Paedophile Information Exchange

This 1977 newspaper cutting corroborates Tom Watson’s recent claim that the Home Office may have funded the Paedophile Information Exchange. The funding came from a branch of the Home Office called the Voluntary Services Unit, and was channeled through the Princedale Trust and the Albany Trust. The concerns were raised by a backbench Conservative MP called Bernard Braine.

This means that two successive Labour governments funded an organisation that wanted the age of consent lowered to 4 years old. It’s still unknown whether this funding carried on into the Thatcher years.


Did the British Government fund pro-paedophile propaganda?
