West Germany may look into Soviet spying

Soviet spies have been expelled in France, Britain, and Spain in the past two weeks - and now the leader of the right-wing Christian Social Union says he will ask the government to disclose the extent of Soviet spying in West Germany.

Theodor Waigel, the party's parliamentary leader in Bonn, told the Bild newspaper that if the existence of a large number of spies was established, the offenders should be sent home. Except for harsh statements, the Soviet Union hasn't responded to France's expulsion of 47 Soviets. But it did announce the expulsion of a British diplomat and a journalist in apparent retaliation for Britain's expelling three Soviet officials. Western sources said Britain had warned that if the Soviets did retaliate, London would order out still more Soviets.
