HC Deb 14 February 1955 vol 537 cc2-3W
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 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.
