Mallinson:
The prime minister?



Insp. Thomas:
The prime minster, sir. That he said if there's the remotest possibility of General de Gaulle's life being threatened by a person of these islands, then it is to be stopped. And he's given me full powers and top priority.



Mallinson:
Is this some kind of bloody joke?



Insp. Thomas:
No, of couse not, sir. I've got to drop whatever I'm doing, and I shall need six of your best men, straight away.



Mallinson:
Where's the notification for all this? Where's the proper authority?


[Telephone rings. Mallison answers]



Mallinson:
Yes!


[Mallison listens then rises]



Mallinson:
Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Of course, sir.
