Sir John Hunt was Secretary of the Cabinet from 1973 to 1979.[1]

Lord Hunt told a Channel 4 documentary in 1996:

There is no doubt at all, that a few, a very few, malcontents in MI5, people who should not have been there in the first place, a lot of them like Peter Wright who were right-wing, malicious and had serious personal grudges, gave vent to these and spread damaging, malicious stories about that Labour government.[2]
