Captain Benson only appears near the start of the film. When Bond arrives to discuss strategies in regard to the submarine tracking system, he meets the Captain, along with Sir Frederick Gray, Admiral Hargreaves and Q.
Captain Benson is the liaison for MI6 at the Polaris submarine base in Scotland. After learning that the submarine tracking system on the market does actually work, Benson is naturally concerned, although doesn't appear to have security clearance when he asks Sir Frederick Gray where the information has come from.
George Baker had previously played Sir Hillary Bray in On Her Majesty's Secret Service eight years earlier. §
