HC Deb 18 December 1986 vol 107 c611W
Q77. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Prime Minister whether she will now release Lord Rothschild from his obligations of confidentiality as a former member of the security services; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

All present and former members of the security services owe a life-long duty of confidentiality to the Crown. They may not make unauthorised disclosures of information acquired in their work. Any requests for authorised disclosure would be considered in the normal way.
