Psychological Operations Units

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what agreement exists between the Defence departments of the UK Government and the US Administration to allow American personnel who are occupying and controlling British bases to employ psychological operations units against British subjects (a) inside and (b) outside such bases. (95928)

The US visiting force does not deploy psychological operations units at bases made available to them in the United Kingdom. There is therefore no need for any such agreement between the Ministry of Defence and the US Department of Defense relating to psychological operations.
