§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
asked the Attorney-General whether he has received the report of the investigation into the allegations of criminal offences that were made in the television film, "MI5's Official Secrets"; and if he will make a statement.
§ The Attorney-General
The investigation by the Metropolitan police, about which I informed the House when answering questions on 18 March, has now been completed and its results have been reported to me by the Director of Public Prosecutions. None of the persons who made, or were said by others to have made, allegations of criminal conduct has been prepared to substantiate those allegations by coming forward with evidence which would justify the institution of proceedings. With my authority, the Director of Public Prosecutions will therefore take no further action in this matter.
