CHAPMAN PINCHER

WHY OFFICIALS LEAK SECRETS

y most cherished professional compliment in Parliament is the Labour Party gibe that I was ‘a public urinal where Ministers and officials queued up to leak’! As the recipient of so many leaks from distinguished public servants and politicians over so many years I have spent much time pondering on the reasons why they took serious risks with their reputations when giving me information which they knew was likely to cause a commotion. Of course, there were various reasons and the leak which caused the greatest upheaval was given to me for the most trivial and, I think, the most reprehensible. In 1953, Sir Archibald Rowlands, the highly respected Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Supply, which dealt with all manner of weapons including atomic bombs, retired and, while at lunch with him, I asked if he could remember any area where I might profitably dig to which he replied, mysteriously, ‘Ask the Ministry of Supply about Nomination’. Realising that it was a code-word I had never encountered, I questioned the Supply Ministry’s public relations chief who, after prolonged inquiry, assured me that the name was unknown. Other evasive responses convinced me that there was a cover-up so, I published a small report about a secret committee called Nomination which appeared to arouse no interest. In fact, my inquiry had caused such a response that I was subjected to surveillance to discover the source. Rowlands’ successor, Sir James Helmore, then called me in to say ‘I must tell you that whoever gave you that information is a traitor and it is your duty to give us his name’. After declining to oblige, I assured him that the source could not possibly be a traitor and that, had the Ministry been honest with me, instead of burying its head in the sand, I would never have mentioned Nomination. Years later, when lecturing to the War Course at Greenwich, I was seated, at lunch, next to Professor R.V. Jones, whose wartime intelligence adventures have been recorded in his classic Most Secret War. ‘However did you find out about Nomination?’ he asked. ‘It was more secret than the atomic bomb itself.’ He then explained that it had been an MI6-CIA group set up to exchange intelligence about Russia’s atomic

GS

activities and, on the day after my report appeared, was about to hold a meeting in Washington. The American reaction to the leak had been fierce. Why had Rowlands been so mischievous? Simply to cause grief to his successor! Usually, there is a more sensible purpose behind a loose tongue, an example being a memorable leak from Harold Watkinson, then Defence Minister, whose department had pulled off a huge arms deal with Saudi Arabia that ensured thousands of British jobs which still continue. Fearful that the Saudis might wish the deal kept secret, the Foreign Office had banned any publicity. I published the news, to the satisfaction of all those who had worked so hard to secure the deal, with no bleats from Saudi Arabia. Sometimes a Government would order a leak of something it would be embarrassing to announce. One such, in 1964, was a much-envied scoop that the British spy, Greville Wynne, who was in a Russian jail, was to be exchanged, on a bridge in Berlin, for a Russian spy, Gordon Lonsdale, held in Britain. The Foreign Office was determined to stop the Russians from claiming credit for the deal so my services were required to get the news out first but not until it was too late for the Russians to withdraw from it. Many leaks were given to me to smite opponents in the various struggles invariably in progress within the government machinery. Others, especially from politicians, were designed to inflate their public reputations or deflate those of Parliamentary opponents. Many more, it seemed, were an aspect of male vanity as some informants, clearly, derived pleasure from letting someone whom they knew would never reveal their names in their lifetime, that they had access to secrets denied to ordinary mortals. I call it the ‘peacock factor’ because it seems to be peculiar to men. The few women I met who knew secrets were absolute clams.

MORE ACCURATE CCTV AHEAD

W

est Berkshire is poised to receive more accurate CCTV according to Susan Powell, for the Safer Communities Partnership. She told Hungerford Town Council on Monday night the old analogue technology of CCTV was outdated and being replaced by digital cameras which produced a more accurate image. She said CCTV observation would be applicable 24 hour a day and would be monitored in a control room with police access in Windsor. The number of primary cameras in operation in towns and villages would be reduced from 56 to 40 and these would be in strategic areas. Ms Powell assured councillors the new system would save costs to councils and ratepayers and data and information would be available to councils.

PSYCHIC OCCURRENCES

or Email adviser@universal-press.co.uk

Sir: With apologies and at risk of offending the knowledgeably and worldly Mr Pincher, I am afraid that I completely disagree with his described opinion of psychic occurrences. I am a member of the Guild of Pastoral Psychology and have had a keen interest in C.G. Jung’s Analytical Psychology for fifty years. I am very aware of the differences between visions projected from the personal unconscious, the numinous visions projected from the collective unconscious and actual ghostly apparition experiences. To me, the article is very cynical and is of limited view. I would like to write of my many and varied experiences, but, due to lack of space I shall only refer to my whole family’s experience when living in a London council flat. My older sister (by two years) and I had a mysterious and scary bedroom experience in our early teens, when an “apparition” burst through our bedroom door, flinging it wide open, pushed between our separated beds and flung open the window curtains behind us. Pat whispered, “are you awake?” I replied, “yes, did you see that?”. She agreed and we said no more. Soon, we discovered that objects were being removed from where we had placed them. We always joked about the situation, although it was unnerving. Pat decided that we should name “him” Wilbur. One day mother overheard us discussing this and queried to what we were referring. When we explained she surprised us by agreeing that such things were happening in her and father’s bedroom. She asked us to avoid mentioning Wilbur in front of the thee younger children. This was barely possible because Wilbur had now decided to walk about the flat whenever he wished and could be seen by anyone. Visitors would suddenly look surprised and say, “there’s someone in your hall,” and we would just gaze at each other and smile. When we all had married and left home Mum and Dad decided to move. She later confided in me that, as they were leaving, she turned round and said quite loudly, “goodbye, Wilbur. I do hope that you find peace and whatever you are looking for, if not, you may always come and stay with us.” Wilbur had become part of the family. I have described just one of my ghostly experiences from several and I must add most have been fairly reasonable and not threatening or aggressive. Yours etc. (Sheila Dobson, Mrs.) Hungerford.
