To ask the Secretary of State for the Defence if he will make a statement on the laying of communications cables by the Government or government agencies in the early 1970s in the Barents Sea in the vicinity of the North Cape Bank. [16691]

The Ministry of Defence did not lay cables in the Barents Sea either in the 1970s, or at any other time. Nor am I aware of any cables laid by any other UK Government organisation.
