Mr. Gorst

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Committee of Inquiry into the operation of the Official Secrets Act is expected to make its report; and on what date it will be published.

Mr. R. Carr

I have just received the Report of the Departmental Committee on Section 2 of the Official Secrets Act, 1911. I am most grateful to Lord Franks and his colleagues for the thorough and expeditious way in which they have carried out their task. The report, with the evidence received by the Committee, will be published at the end of next month.
