Some information is so secret that it cannot be disclosed — except to a very few. Such information is known to the Security Service but to no one outside. It is information of this kind which was hinted at in the case of Mark Hosenball, in R v Home Secretary, ex parte Hosenball. Mark Hosenball was an American journalist. His permit to be at the Home office had four weeks to go when he received a letter. It told him that he could no longer stay because the Secretary of State had decided to deport him. This belief was founded on confidential information which was to the effect that Mr. Hosenball was trying to obtain information of a very sensitive character about the security arrangements. His intention was to publish it in a way which would imperil the lives of the men in the secret service.
