HC Deb 21 July 1958 vol 592 c7W
54. Mr. Mason

asked the Minister of Supply if he is now able to make a statement on the result of Departmental inquiries into the security leakage in connection with the Swallow aircraft.

Mr. Aubrey Jones

Yes. Owing to a misunderstanding which occurred outside my Department, clearance was given for the article in question without consultation with my officials. Normally advice in cases of this kind is sought from the Department primarily concerned, which in this case was mine.
