Their '67 victims' have now become 72 according to an article in the Independent on17th November 2013, concerning a suggestion by the President in the Faculty of Public Health for a debate into lowering the age of consent.
A lawyer representing 72 of the victims of Jimmy Savile warned against any move to lower the age of consent.
Liz Dux, who heads a specialist child abuse team at Slater & Gordon, said: “I have real concerns about the prospect of the age of consent being lowered.
Ms Dux's goes on :
“Predatory adults would be given legitimacy to focus their attentions on even younger teenagers and there is a real risk that society would be sending out the message that sex between 14-15-year-olds is also acceptable.

Liz Dux, one of the lawyers representing his victims, said Savile's offences on NHS property were just as bad as those committed on the BBC premises and in some cases much worse.
Dux, of Slater & Gordon, added that more people in the NHS than previously thought knew about what was happening and took no action.
Here's an example she quotes
'There are stories of Savile being on top of people in the wards and nurses just saying "Oh, get out Jimmy, you shouldn't be in here".'
There are some interesting comments from those who say they, or someone they knew, were there !
Moor Larkin mentioned in my comments section in my previous post about a letter, originally published in the Nursing Standard on January 30th 2013 entitled 'Savile was uninversally loathed by Stoke Mandeville Staff'. Again, no mention of patients or children - NONE !
