§ Q1. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Prime Minister if she will place in the Library a copy of all correspondence conducted on her behalf between Sir Robert Armstrong and Mr. Chapman Pincher.
§ The Prime Minister (Mrs. Margaret Thatcher)
It remains inappropriate to comment on matters in issue in the Peter Wright case in Australia. I also intend to follow the precedent set by previous Governments of not commenting on security matters.
§ Mr. Dalyell
By what method did a Government agency first obtain the page proofs of "Their Trade is Treachery"? This is not exactly related to the current case.
§ The Prime Minister
I am very grateful for the fact that I am not responsible for the hon. Member for Linlithgow (Mr. Dalyell).
§ Mr. Speaker
Order. This is not an open question. The question on the Order Paper is specifically about correspondence conducted between Sir Robert Armstrong and Mr. Chapman Pincher.
