§ Mr. Dalyell
To ask the Prime Minister for what reason Her Majesty's Government have intervened to halt the publication of the academic work on "Strategies for Deception" by Professor Sir Nicholas Howard, All Souls.
§ The Prime Minister
I assume that the hon. Gentleman is referring to the volume in the "Official History of British Intelligence" series prepared by Professor Sir Michael Howard, Regius Professor of Modern History and Fellow of Oriel College, Oxford. Publication of this volume is still under consideration. At such time as a decision is taken, I shall, of course, inform the House.
