Those involved with our security and intelligence agencies have, in the past, tended to keep any information about themselves to themselves. In the absence of fact, suspicion flourishes. What do these agencies get up to? Who controls them? Do Ministers really know what's going on, or are these agencies out of control? What's to stop them spying on you and me?
These are fair questions. They demand answers. The answers are not secret.
This publication, originally published in 2000, is designed to answer those questions.
