Subjects covered in this file include British intelligence organisation in the Middle East; intelligence requirements on atomic energy development in foreign countries; the provision of press material from the U.S.S.R. and its satellites; the worldwide spread of communism; plans for post-independence intelligence organisation in India; an American request for intelligence on beaches in the United Kingdom; the experiences of a British journalist during a journey from Berlin to Moscow by car; and concern over Soviet attachés’ unhindered access to important U.K. military establishments.
