Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs pursuant to paragraph 3.27 of the National Security Strategy of the United Kingdom, Cm 7291, which states he suspects of state-sponsored terrorism. (212406)

As the National Security Strategy says, we are alert to the possibility of sponsorship of terrorist activity by states. However, it is the long-standing policy of the Government not to comment on intelligence matters and it would not be in the interest of national security to discuss, in public, our assessment of possible links between terrorist groups and individual states.
