Mr. R. C. Mitchell
asked the Attorney-General whether the Director of Public Prosecutions has completed his investigation into the award of the contract for the recovery of gold from HMS Edinburgh; and if he will make a statement.
§ The Attorney-General
Following the submission of a report by the Metropolitan Police to the Director of Public Prosecutions, two men have been charged with offences contrary to the Official Secrets Act 1911. I do not propose to make a statement.
