Subject: Ex-Home Secretary Leon Brittan dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/22/15 at 7:05 pm

Former Home Secretary Leon Brittan has died aged 75 after a long battle with cancer, his family have said.

The former Conservative MP was a key figure in Margaret Thatcher's government in the 1980s and later became a European Commissioner.

Prime Minister David Cameron said he had been a "dedicated and fiercely intelligent public servant".

Lord Brittan recently faced questions over his handling of child abuse allegations during his time in office.

The controversy centred on a dossier on alleged high-profile paedophiles handed to the then home secretary by former Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens. Lord Brittan insisted the proper procedures had been followed.
