§ 50. Mr. Beswick
asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware that the United States Press in December published reports of the de Havilland air-to-air missiles using an infra-red target-seeing 3W guidance device, together with the name of the fighter aircraft in which this device is likely to be installed; and what representations he has made about this contravention of British security regulations.
§ Mr. Selwyn Lloyd
Yes. I have ordered an investigation to be made into the origin of the report, whose accuracy I am not prepared, for reasons of security, either to confirm or to deny; in the meantime, the question of making representations in any quarter does not arise.
