Let me say to the right hon. and learned Gentleman that there have been some extraordinnary stories about this matter and I agree with him that they must be clarified beyond any measure of doubt.

I have asked my right hon. and learned Friend the Attorney-General to make a statement on the matter later this afternoon. My right hon. and learned Friend will tell the House that the Government will be setting up an independent judicial inquiry, which will have full access to all the papers and will be able to take evidence from all he Departments and all the agencies concerned.
