Unidentified Flying Objects

Volume 507: debated on Monday 8 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence for what reasons his Department plans a retention period of one month for reports of unidentified flying objects. (320982)

The long-term retention of UFO sighting reports delivers no benefit to defence and diverts resources from higher priority tasks. UFO sighting reports passed to the MOD are retained for 30 days to allow correspondents to request the return of their reports should they wish to do so and are then destroyed.
