BBC: Cuts threaten UK intelligence


Planned job cuts could undermine the UK's intelligence performance, former top security officials have warned.

A reduction of 121 posts has been proposed for the Defence Intelligence Staff (DIS) which analyses information from GCHQ, MI6 and the MoD.

John Morrison, former Deputy Chief of Defence Intelligence, said the losses would be "ludicrous" and mean giving up large areas of the DIS's work.

The MoD insisted intelligence capability would not be compromised.
Perhaps if the proposers were warned that such a move would decrease - sorry, impinge upon - diversity they would rethink.
