The courts have ruled that the warrant for the arrests of the alleged perpetrators of the Westminster paedophile ring is credible.
But the police, and the government, have so far refused to give evidence to a public inquiry into how they handled the case.
The warrants were issued in the wake of the publication of a damning book by former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Lord Brittan which said senior police officials were complicit in covering up child sex abuse in Westminster.
It also said the Metropolitan Police had failed to investigate allegations that MPs were involved in the abuse.
The Home Office said it was “confident that the warrants are lawful and are being used for the right reason”.
Police have said they have arrested a number of people since the inquiry was launched, and a number have been charged.
However, a spokesman for Mr Cameron said he did not know whether any arrests had taken place.
The prime minister said: “This is a matter of national concern.
We have to look at the whole of the justice system in this country and not only in this particular case, but across the whole country.”
We’ve got to be vigilant in all of this, and it is important we don’t put ourselves at risk.
“The Home Secretary, Theresa May, said the Government was “committed” to protecting the victims and their families.
“The investigation into Westminster’s Westminster paedophiles has been in full control of the Metropolitan police. “
We will be taking every step necessary to ensure that the police have all the resources they need to do their job in this case, to bring the perpetrators to justice,” she said.
“The investigation into Westminster’s Westminster paedophiles has been in full control of the Metropolitan police.
I want to stress that we have not been told any information which might compromise that investigation.”
A Home Office spokesman said: ‘The Home Secretary has been clear that we will take every necessary step to ensure the Metropolitan authorities are taking all necessary steps to secure the investigation.
‘We will also work with the police to ensure this investigation is as sensitive as possible.’
The Metropolitan Police said it had taken action to prevent any further allegations being made against any police officer in relation to this case.
A spokesperson said: ”The Met has taken every action necessary to secure a prosecution and has made all the required assessments, including those involving safeguarding the children.
”The Metropolitan Police has taken action over the past 12 months to prevent further allegations of child sex exploitation being made.
“As the Met continues to undertake its investigation, we will be fully transparent and will be publishing any findings at a later date. “
‘In addition, we have conducted an internal investigation, and will continue to do so. “
As the Met continues to undertake its investigation, we will be fully transparent and will be publishing any findings at a later date.
”It is also important to stress, as this matter has been dealt with, that we do not tolerate child abuse, and any allegations of such must be thoroughly investigated and acted on. “
It is important to remember that all these actions were taken in accordance with our policies and procedures, and in accordance, of course, with the law.
‘The Met’s internal investigations will also look at any other incidents which may have been reported to us as part of this investigation. “
If there is any allegation of child abuse against any Met police officer, the officers involved will be afforded the same due process as any other victim.
‘The Met’s internal investigations will also look at any other incidents which may have been reported to us as part of this investigation.
”Further, any allegations relating to other matters should be referred to the appropriate police authorities.’
‘The police are also taking all steps necessary to address any ongoing concerns regarding our ability to investigate and prosecute serious offences involving young people in this context.
‘Further, we must ensure that our forces and our communities are safe, secure and secure for children.
‘Finally, it is our responsibility to uphold the trust that is placed in us, and that is why we are committed to making sure that every police officer is held to account in the future.’
What are the warrants?
The Metropolitan police said it is investigating the alleged abusers of a number politicians and officials.
They include the current leader of the opposition, Mark Reckless, and Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg.
The group also includes a former police officer who was a partner at an MP’s firm.
The police said they are seeking to question the former deputy prime minister Nick Cleckley, former police minister Nick Brown and former police inspector Richard Kemp.
They are also investigating former police superintendent Peter Hayman.
The Metropolitan’s investigation is still ongoing.
A senior Metropolitan Police officer said the current chief constable was “fully committed” to the investigation and that the investigations team had made “substantial progress”.
The Met said that a number people have been arrested, including “two officers involved in an investigation” and a “former MP”.
It is not clear whether the suspects have been convicted.
The suspects are being held in custody until the investigation is completed.
