Description

A volume of reports commissioned for the Joint Intelligence Sub-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. A vast range of international and domestic issues are investigated and analysed in the JIC's reports. Subjects covered in this file include the military capabilities of the Soviet Union and its satellites; the likelihood of war between the Soviet Union and the West; the defence capabilities of the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth, and the UK's European allies; plans for the partition of Palestine; concerns over illegal Jewish immigration; and issues relating to independence movements in colonies.
