From 1936, they lived at 52 Parliament Hill, in a flat owned by the Communist film director and producer Ralph Bond. During the 1930s, Bond was making a name as a documentary film-maker; he was also known to MI5 as a member of the CPGB. Through John Grierson, Bond had been offered a job as production manager at the GPO Film Unit, a role which enabled him to give Meyer the opportunity to write and edit music for GPO documentary films. 10_Charmian_Ch-8.indd 87 9/4/2013 5:47:28 PM

Heffer claimed the attack was ‘grossly unfair and cruel’. 80 Kinnock was delighted with the reaction: ‘I could only have prayed for, if I believed in prayer, the reaction I got from Hatton and Heffer.
