HC Deb 02 August 1966 vol 733 cc84-5W
Q6. Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Prime Minister if he will now make a statement on the result of the inquiry which he initiated into leaks to the Press, following reports in newspapers early in June that the Government favoured withdrawal from the European Launcher Development Organisation project.

The Prime Minister

Yes. The interim report which I mentioned in the House on 21st July suggested certain lines of inquiry which have subsequently been followed up in subsidiary investigations. The House will wish to know that no evidence of any deliberate or malicious act of passing on confidential information has emerged from any of these inquiries; and that, on the information available, the Government are satisfied that this was not the case of a deliberate leak.
