HC Deb 08 July 1952 vol 503 cc1090-1
46. Mr. Wigg

asked the Prime Minister whether the newspaper articles recently written by Mr. Alan Moorehead, a former Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Defence, were submitted for security check before publication.

The Prime Minister

Yes, Sir.

Mr. Ellis Smith

That is a change from yesterday.

Mr. Anthony Greenwood

Do not recent events suggest that the standard of security at the Ministry of Defence, from the Minister downwards, is relatively low?

The Prime Minister

That seems to be a rather inferior type of jibe.
