To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the bugging of the UK Mission in the Justus Lipsius Council of Ministers building. 
The Government was informed of the discovery of a number of devices in the Justus Lipsius building at a very early stage, and we have been kept fully informed. The bugging operation is a matter of serious concern. The EU Council Secretariat, which is responsible for security in the building, is conducting an investigation. We are co-operating closely with them.
