... uk (Issue 55) Summer 2008 Last | Contents | Next Issue 55 Britain, America and Anti-Communist Propaganda 1945-53 The Information Research Department Andrew Defty Oxford and New York: Routledge, 2004, £23.99, p/b Thinking about this book, I wondered why people like me have been so interested in IRD for the last 30 years. There are two reasons, I think. The first is that way back in the 1970s, when information about the British secret state was virtually non-existent, some articles were published about IRD. They got onto the agenda when there was almost nothing else on it and so they loomed large. ...

... for the British and American intelligence services. Crozier would deny that he worked for anybody: 'at all times I remained independent, executing only tasks that were in line with my own objectives. '( pp. xii, xiii) But on p. xii of the preface he tells us he 'worked with' the CIA, MI6 and IRD; on p. 20 he tells that briefings he had been getting from an MI6 officer secured for him the job as editor of the Economist's Foreign Report; on p. 51 he writes of a 'part-time consultancy for IRD'; and on p. 86 that IRD 'put an office at [his] disposal.

Increasingly they are hidden, though they can be traced by reference to GCHQ outposts like Darwin (Australia).

Later transformed into the 'Overseas Information Dept' (OID) and, later still, the plain 'Information Dept'. (C ) Controversial.

14. Ken Livingstone's questions [Lobster #16 (Jun 1988)]
... against the Tory government, the secret state in Scotland has doubled in size. That such a relationship should exist is obvious enough, but now it has been illustrated. On March 7th Livingstone asked the Foreign Office "How many civil servants were engaged in the Information Research Department in each year since 1971." And got an answer. IRD is the one bit of the secret state, not officially a part of MI6, which the state can't refuse to answer questions on. The figures are: 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 117 99 91 91 88 85 85 (NB This is the 'staff establishment' which, I think, is Civil Service-speak for ...

Two things have struck me that seems to have escaped comment anywhere. Firstly, that the March 1949 meeting between Orwell and Kirwan (during the former's tubercular confinement in Gloucestershire) resulted in a list of potential recruits to IRD, and the so-called 'blacklist' was sent, ...

(c ) www.lobster-magazine.co.uk (Issue 19) May 1990 Last | Contents | Next Issue 19 Wallace etc IRD, home and away The creation of the Information Policy unit in HQ Northern Ireland in 1971 may have been the last occasion on which the classic IRD psy-war operation was created. Evidence of previous examples is hard to find, but skimming through Charles Foley's Legacy of Strife: Cyprus from rebellion to civil war (Penguin, Harmondsworth, 1964) recently I noticed this section on p104: 'No effort was spared by the Secretariat to win over the foreign press with titillating stories. Sometimes, for the benefit of American correspondents ...

... , but that is the outfit he means.) Vialls believes that the shooting was part of the demonization of Libya prior to the bombing of that country by the USA, with British assistance. Vialls' attempt to prove that he committed a murder everyone else thinks done by someone else is unique, as far as I am aware. IRD: new material, old lies Another flurry of newspaper articles about IRD's early years occurred in August based on the release of some hitherto secret government files on the department. The only new piece of information I noticed in the press reports was in the Times August 17 1995, 'Celebrity team used in secret anti-Soviet campaign'. ...

... . The Congress's press agency was detached, reorganised and renamed Forum World Features, and Crozier was appointed its director in 1965.(125) Crozier claims that 'In 1968 the KGB made a first attempt to wreck Forum';(126) and perhaps in anticipation of the day when Forum was 'blown', with other personnel from the IRD network Crozier set up the Institute for the Study of Conflict (ISC) between 1968 and 1970.(127) ISC The first funding came from Shell and BP but then, as Crozier puts it, 'the Agency [CIA] now came up with something bigger', and put him in contact with the American multi-millionaire ...
