Title: Cabinet Office: Central Office Machinery: Joint Intelligence Committee (A): Minutes (JIC(A), JIC)

Minutes of the Joint Intelligence Committee (A) until 30 September 1974 and then the Joint Intelligence Committee.

Date: 1969-1982

Although the Joint Intelligence Committee (JIC) became the Joint Intelligence Committee (A) (JIC(A)) effective 1 April 1968, the symbol 'JIC(A)' was not taken into use on the minutes until the beginning of 1969. The reversion of JIC(A) to the JIC designation effective 1 October 1974 was reflected in an immediate readoption of the 'JIC' symbol.
