HC Deb 06 December 1994 vol 251 cc161-2W
Mr. Byers

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland how many(a) top secret and (b) secret files his Department holds.

Mr. Lang

[holding answer 30 November 1994]: The most recent estimates show that there are around 35 top secret and around 800 secret paper files held within my Department. That is less than 0.06 per cent. of all paper files currently held.
