Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 16 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will make a statement on the Government’s policy on the provision of support and information to the US Administration in relation to the investigation of terrorism and the questioning of suspects. (157344)

The Government work closely with the US Government on issues relating to the investigation of terrorism. Many of the terrorist threats to the UK have international connections, which can only be dealt with effectively in co-operation with the intelligence and security agencies of other states. When working with the US Administration, or any other foreign government, we ensure that we act in accordance with our human rights obligations.
