§ 49. Mr. John E. Haire
asked the Prime Minister whether it is now proposed to require scientists engaged in Government Defence Departments to pass a loyalty test.
§ The Prime Minister
No, Sir; but such steps are taken as are necessary to make sure that those who are entrusted with secret information of vital importance to the State are loyal to the State.
§ Mr. Platts-Mills
Can the Prime Minister give an assurance that no scientists, and indeed no civil servants, will be employed in any capacity if there is any possible suspicion that they could be guilty of un-American activities?
