asked the Attorney-General what inquiries have followed the recent disclosure to a journalist of classified information concerning the recall of Sir Geoffrey Harrison from Moscow in 1968.

The Attorney-General

The circumstances of Sir Geoffrey Harrison's recall from Moscow are discussed in Mr. Chapman Pincher's recent book. I refer my hon. Friend to the answers which my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister gave to the hon. Member for Keighley (Mr. Cryer) on 27 March and 1 April about the investigation into the sources of information given to Mr. Pincher regarding security matters.
