HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c132W
Mr. Bob Dunn

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish in the Official Report the names of those agencies and bodies which operate in the United Kingdom of which his Department is aware which are funded partly or in whole by the Soviet Union and include among their functions the dissemination of pro-Soviet propaganda, but which ostensibly are not Soviet organisations.

Mr. Whitelaw

I am aware of the possibility of organisations operating in the United Kingdom being used willingly or otherwise to further foreign interests, but organisations are not required to disclose to me the sources of their funds. It is for those who come into contact with an organisation to judge from its activities what are its true purposes.
