I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave on 30th March to the hon. Member for Twickenham (Mr. Keeling). After consultation with the Service Departments, I am satisfied that no further action is necessary for security reasons.

May we take it from the right hon. Gentleman's answer that the Service Departments are now also completely satisfied?
