‘MI5 the place to look for files’

Yesterday’s Times quoted Laurie Sapper, general secretary of the Association of University Teachers, as saying:

‘In spite of the inspection of files throughout the university system, forcibly or otherwise, not one single case has arisen which shows that political information on staff or students is systematically kept.

If there are to be demonstrations and sit-ins over this issue, students would be emplying their time better by doing so at MI5 or Special Branch offices where one assumes that nothing else but political information is kept’.
