Asked if the Prime Minister agreed with Gordon Brown that intelligence should be separated from politicians, the PMOS replied that looking at the Butler review, and the consequences of the review, this was a part of that. As an example of what had happened since then, SIS had created a senior post with responsibility for the overall quality of intelligence, and the process by which it is produced. They had also put in place mechanisms to ensure that all highly classified material was seen by at least one DIS officer who could advise them further on redistribution. This was a process of ongoing review, but this was a process that was put in place as a result of the Butler review.
