Lord Strabolgi: My Lords, may I ask the Government whether they think that any of these UFOs are manned spacecraft from a planet outside the solar system, as is believed by the ‘ufologists’?
Viscount Long: My Lords, the noble Lord can believe that; anything is possible.
Lord Wade: My Lords, may I ask which Ministry is responsible for UFOs?
Viscount Long: None, my Lords. Reports come into the Ministry of Defence, and anyone can take them from there.
Viscount St. Davids: My Lords, has anybody yet found an empty beer can marked, "Made in Centaurus ", or any similar object? Until they have, will the ministry deal with these matters with very considerable scepticism, please!
Viscount Long: My Lords, I am not the Minister for conservation, if it is a question of beer cans.
Lord Morris: My Lords, if something is said to be unidentified, how can it possibly be said to exist?
Viscount Long: A very good question, my Lords.
Lord Leatherhead: My Lords, can the Minister tell us whether any of the unidentified flying objects are Ministers who are fleeing from the Cabinet just now?
Viscount Long: No, my Lords.
Готовый скетч, по-моему. Я нашел его среди свежерассекреченных британских документов про НЛО, но вообще там интересного немного (материалы по т.н. Рендльшемскому делу были доступны и раньше), в-основном переписка между дикими уфологами и машинистками министерства обороны.
