Labour’s Tristram Hunt describes missing National Archive files as ‘worrying loss’
More than 400 documents, including government files relating to the UK’s involvement in Israel’s alleged nuclear arsenal, have gone missing over the last four years, it has been revealed. The response to a Freedom of Information request showed the UK’s National Archive at Kew contains more than 11 million documents in total, including many government documents that become publicly available after 30 years. Notable missing files include 1970s documents on nuclear collaboration with Israel, as well as a letter from Winston Churchill. The losses were revealed by a FoI request submitted by the BBC. A 1979 document titled “Military and nuclear collaboration with Israel: Israeli nuclear armament”, is among the missing pieces.
