HC Deb 23 February 1984 vol 54 c582W
Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Prime Minister how many members of the security service have taken up employment in the private sector on retirement or resignation in each of the past three years; and what steps have been taken to ensure that the knowledge acquired by them in Government service was not used directly or indirectly for their own benefit or that of their employer.

The Prime Minister

It has been the stated policy of successive Governments not to give detailed accounts of security service matters.
