Summary

A volume of secretariat minutes of the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC). The JIC was formed of representatives from the intelligence services, the armed services, and the Foreign Office. Its purpose was to assess military, security, and foreign policy requirements and coordinate Britain's intelligence organisations accordingly. Secretariat minutes were used to pass documents such as JIC sub-committee and working party reports and intelligence assessments to JIC members. Subjects covered in this file include intelligence gathering in the Eastern Bloc; Soviet attempts to recruit agents in Britain; intelligence cooperation with the United States of America; travel restrictions on Soviet diplomats in the United Kingdom and British diplomats in the Soviet Union; German use of Soviet renegades, and the potential for similar use in a future war; Chinese interrogation methods; intelligence organisation in Hong Kong; predicted global trouble spots; Soviet military activity and technology; possible American strategy in the Middle East; and the defection of British soldiers to the Soviet Union.
