HC Deb 20 June 1951 vol 489 c59W
90. Captain Duncan

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will give an assurance that the security officer in his Department has the right of direct access to him at all times and on how many occasions this right has been exercised this year.

Mr. H. Morrison

The Permanent Under-Secretary is responsible to me for security as for all other questions in the Foreign Office. The head of the Security Department is, like all other heads of Foreign Office Departments, able to see me, should it be necessary, when the subject he deals with is under discussion.
