In respect of unauthorised disclosure of official information under, for example, the Official Secrets Act, if the police find evidence of a suspected breach of the criminal law, it is entirely within the powers of the police to begin an investigation under their own auspices, whether or not the Government has raised the incident with them.&quot;</p><p> </p><p>A copy is in the Library of the House and is available at https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/228774/7863.pdf</p> more like this
