Parker Rossman hopes to meet Grey again if he returns to London and proposes a:

‘circle of correspondents who might like to exchange some serious views — perhaps even small papers — on this topic. You might let me know if you find some people who might be interested.’

He hopes the group might correspond on sex education and appreciated seeing the film strip in London.

Grey had departed from Albany Trust mid-1977 and in 1978 had accepted Nettie Pollard’s invitation to join the NCCL following his statements at a recent NCCL conference

“At this moment, we have some very involved and interesting work being done on the Child Protection Bill. What will come of that remains to be seen.”

Within a month (either before or after) of this letter PIE published Paedophilia: Some Questions and Answers which had been co-drafted by PIE and the Albany Trust under Sir Harold Haywood’s chairmanship 1975-1977.
