Iraq: Peacekeeping Operations

Volume 475: debated on Friday 9 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what reports he has received on whether British personnel taken hostage in Iraq have passed into the custody of Iran's Revolutionary Guard; and if he will make a statement. (203875)

We have received no substantive evidence of Iranian involvement in the case of the British nationals taken hostage in Iraq, although we have seen speculative media reports. It is our policy not to discuss the operational details of the Government's response or analysis when we judge that doing so would not be in the interests of the hostages.
