Probe call as declassified files are ‘lost’
LABOUR has demanded an investigation after key Government files vanished after being borrowed from the National Archives.
Whitehall has yet to return documents detailing controversial events, including the Falklands War and the Troubles in Northern Ireland.
It raises questions over how the Government can remove papers after they have been declassified.
Shadow Cabinet Office Minister Jon Trickett said: “The British people deserve to know what the Government has done... and the loss will only fuel accusations of a cover-up.
“These important documents may be a great loss to history and their disappearance must urgently be investigated.”
