21. The Ulster Citizen Army smear [Lobster #14 (Nov 1987)]
... groups that it was real and the later reaction of journalists that it was a 'funny' - both were correct; and (b ) because of one sentence in the document: "As far as is known this project was cleared through H. Mooney, the FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) Information Adviser." Mooney was the IRD (Information Research Department) officer involved in the creation of the Information Policy Unit and his name is to be found very rarely indeed. I just do not believe that a phoney briefing document on the UCA would so casually (and senselessly) reveal the identity and role of Hugh Mooney. (1 ) The evidence is that, ...

Wark in International History Review February 1987 This is an interesting addition to what little information we have on the early years of the Information Research Department (IRD) and the uses to which IRD put Soviet defectors. It also contains a couple of names to add to the list of known IRD people. Wark states flatly that IRD's work fell between 'white' and 'black' propaganda - which I don't believe. One former British diplomat to whom I spoke about IRD (and who wouldn't thank ...

23. 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 ...

... ), the Gibraltar, Andersontown and Milltown cemetery incidents, the Birmingham 6 and so on. Quilligan was one of the people linked to the Provos in the FCO 'Background Briefing' issued to the media. (See Guardian 11 May 1988). This 'Background Briefing' differs not a jot from the kinds of 'briefings' put out by IRD in the 1970s and is proof that while IRD may have officially closed, its functions continue in other guises. Canadian Association For Security And Intelligence Studies Newsletter Issue 10 arrived, chock full of news and details of books recent and forthcoming in the intelligence field. It includes a couple of very sharp book reviews from James Rusbridger who, ...

... his colleagues. Wallace is also the masked gun-man on the top corner. The lithographic plate made to print this is hanging on Wallace's sitting room wall. Dowling comments on the Information Policy/Public Relations relationship: 'The Information Policy department was the cannon, Public Relations was merely the shell. ' (p62) He mentions the IRD officer, Hugh Mooney, seconded to Information Policy - 'an Anglo-Irishman who liaised with the Foreign Office and the British Information Service outlets in foreign embassies. ' (p62) Did the press in Northern Ireland know about Information Policy? 'Like many of the better-connected reporters covering Belfast, Pascal had regular contact with the Information ...

... provided an opportunity to smear Wilson who, in fact, had acted completely honourably. Over the years there have been veiled references in gossip to Wilson but no substantial published material, though there were some peculiar letters from a Wilson enemy Hartley Shawcross. What the Tribunal did reveal was the involvement of the newly created Foreign Office propaganda unit, IRD, within the Labour movement. There was considerable press interest in 1962 in the East-West Traders who went to the Leipzig Trade Fair. Questions were asked in the House of Commons and much was made of their close relationship to the, then, unrecognised East German government.

Although this is incomplete and under researched, we thought it worth putting out now. The origins of IRD 1947 saw the creation of the Foreign Office's Information Research Department (IRD). It is generally accepted that IRD was the brain-child of the then Labour M.P .

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 ...
