§ Q27. Sir David Price
asked the Prime Minister if she is satisfied with the security of information and documents in central Government Departments.
§ The Prime Minister
Every effort is made to maintain the security and confidentiality of classified information, and security and document handling procedures are kept constantly under review for that purpose. There continue, none the less, to be unauthorised disclosures of such information. Whatever their sources and motives, they constitute deplorable breaches of professional trust and confidence. When such a disclosure can be traced to its source, appropriate action is taken.
