Did the UK government vote for a cover-up in the Westminster child sex abuse inquiry?

The elite corridors of Westminster are under investigation for alleged historic child sex abuse. Accusations of institutional peadophilia dating back over 40 years have been made by a number of anonymous sources. Furthermore many of the police witnesses involved are on record with suggestions of a cover-up by the establishment. The Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) is investigating.

Meanwhile, the coalition government of the Conservatives and Lib Dems have launched the Child Sex Abuse (CSA) inquiry and made great proclamations of following where the evidence leads. This is overshadowed by the Official Secrets Act (OSA) which is cited by police officers as a block on the truth, although they themselves might be guilty of investigation errors.

In response to this Labour MP John Mann tabled an amendment to OSA to protect whistle blowers. In the following parliament vote the amendment was defeated. How MPs voted can be found here.

The coalition government in the face of public pressure seemed to closed ranks. All those against a transparent inquiry were either Conservative or Lib Dem, although not exclusively with 8 and 3 rebelling against their parties.
