They disclosed that during the last year or so at least five Hus sian trade officials, three Polish diplomats and some other uni dentified representatives Communist countries have been ordered to leave. The British authorities have advised members of the. North Atlantic Alliance of their ac- tions. The purpose, informants said, is to ensure other allied govern- ments are fully aware of the latest methods and practices used by their Communist adver- saries in Europe. The sources stressed the ex- pulsions were not the result of a discovery of a large Soviet-di- rected espionage operation. They have been the result, rather, of increased vigilance following shakeup of British se- curity cervices introduced by the former Labor government.
