§ Mr.Peter Bruinvels
asked the Secretary of State for Defence if he will review the vetting procedure for all officials of his Department.
As my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister has told the House, the Government have accepted the recommendations of the Security Commission in its reports on the Prime and Aldridge cases, which called for a number of changes in vetting procedures to be implemented or considered. Vetting procedures will be kept under review in the light of subsequent developments.
