BAE Systems

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what requests the Government have received from the US Department of Justice to assist in its investigation into BAe Systems; and if she will make a statement; (198012)

(2) what provisions have been made by the Government to assist the US Department of Justice in its investigation into BAe Systems; and if she will make a statement.

I refer the hon. Member to previous answers provided on this matter. I can confirm that the Home Office has received a request for assistance from the USA in respect of corruption allegations concerning BAE Systems. The request is being dealt with in accordance with the bi-lateral treaty on mutual legal assistance between the UK and the USA. It would be inappropriate to comment further.
