§ 77. Mr. Janner
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will make available the full text of the letter recently circulated to all Government establishments with regard to the machinery for preventing the unauthorised disclosure of official information; and whether he will give an assurance that no Government official will be prevented by this machinery from being able to expose inefficiency or corruption in a Department in which he has served.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
I am arranging for a copy of the Circular to be placed in the Library. The purpose of the Circular is to ensure that public servants are reminded of their obligations as laid down by Parliament in the Official Secrets Acts.
