HC Deb 13 February 1967 vol 741 c15W
91. Sir J. Langford-Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what methods were used to discover the true identity of a Foreign Service official who wrote to the Paymaster-General under the pseudonym of Vaughan Lewis at a bank address.

Mr. George Thomson

The writer was immediately identified from the fact that he had already made very similar allegations in an interview with an official in the Diplomatic Service Administration Office in October, 1966. He used as an address the account number and bank address he had himself given to the Diplomatic Service Pay authorities. No reference was made to any outside body in order to identify the writer.
