Rumpole defends Rosemary Tuttle, an employee of the Ministry of Defense who is charged with a breach of the Official Secrets Act specifically, releasing documents outlining the amounts spent by the Department on biscuits and tea. Rumpole is all set to base his defense on the silliness of the situation, but his client insists that she is innocent.
