Any and all information relating to the discussion of Boy Sex Rings being used by Foreign Agents, by the New York Senate Select Committee on Crime in 1982. I further request any and all information related to any actions taken by the Committee, as well as any documents concerning ''government officials" whom were said to be implicated in these sex rings. Related Articles Include:

*The investigator, Dale Smith, who works for the New York State Senate's Select Committee on Crime, said he had learned that British, Israeli and Soviet agents had bought information from several call services in Washington.

Mr. Smith appeared before the committee at the opening in New York City of a two-day hearing on prostitution among young males and on pornography.

Mr. Smith said that an accountant for five call services had told him about the sale of information to foreign agents. He refused to elaborate on the allegations when questioned by reporters, but the committee counsel, Jeremiah McKenna, said that the information concerned ''government officials.'' He declined to be more specific.

Mr. Smith also said that ''call service operations in Washington have some connection with organized crime in New York.'' He described how male prostitutes between the ages of 13 and 16 were shuttled between the cities, and were paid from $50 to $250, with younger boys commanding the most.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response in the coming days.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 5 business days, as the statute requires.
