A HUDDERSFIELD University expert is expecting further revelations about one of Britain's most notorious political scandals.
Stephen Dorril, co-author of a book on the subject, said some key figures might now speak out following John Profumo's death at 91.
The Tory politician resigned as Minister of War in 1963 for lying to the Commons over his affair with call girl Christine Keeler.
At the time she was also involved with a military attaché at the Soviet embassy.
Mr Dorril said he expected an account written by Mr Profumo and given to his solicitor would now become public.
But it was unlikely to contain anything startling, said Mr Dorrill.
He told the Examiner: "I think it will be a fairly straightforward document.
"More significant is that one or two people I know might come out and talk.
"They were involved in this and have never said anything in 40 years."
Mr Dorril, a senior lecturer in media and journalism at Huddersfield University, is co-author with Anthony Summers of Honeytrap, a book about the scandal, first published in 1987.
An updated version by the two writers is due out this year.
Mr Dorril said it was untrue that the affair brought down the Tory Government of 13 years - but it did pave the way for a Labour victory.
He added: "It was probably more important culturally than politically in that it signalled a change from the staid, conformist 1950s to the swinging '60s.
"A lot of politicians were having affairs at the time. There are still some scandals to come out."
After leaving politics Mr Profumo dedicated himself to charity work in the East End of London. He was awarded the CBE in 1975.
He was heavily involved with Toynbee Hall, a charity supporting poor people.
