I am aware of the State papers to which the Deputy refers. However, I will not make any comment or second-guess the judgment of the people who decided to put anybody under surveillance at any time. That was done by people in military intelligence and was sanctioned by or at least known to those who were Ministers at the time. I answer for military intelligence now and take full responsibility for what it does now. It reports to me on a regular basis and I am satisfied that what it does now is the minimum necessary and no more than is necessary.
