'More KGB revelations to come'
The former KGB HQ: More spies are to be named, says Tom King
More dramatic revelations about KGB spies will emerge over the next few days, former Conservative Defence Secretary Tom King has said.
Her file was just one of many smuggled out Russia by a defecting KGB agent.
Mr King said it would be "incredible" if the home secretary had not been informed when Mrs Norwood's role became known to the British intelligence services.
He said his committee would be investigating the revelations as there now had to be a "full consideration" of the case.
And he said the files taken out of Russia by Vasili Mitrokhin, a former KGB officer, would reveal more names in the next few days.
"This is going to reveal a lot. I have seen a brief summary of some of the key areas and I think it's going to be of key interest not only to ourselves but also to the US."
He said Mrs Norwood's role may not have been made public earlier because there was much more information in the files to investigate.
Mr King said they covered the activities of the KGB "practically since the October revolution" of 1917.
He said the files also contained details of the KGB's methods, approach and attitudes.
