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.
