HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 cc91-2W
Mr. Rooker

asked the Prime Minister if he will now answer Questions relating to unauthorised telephone interceptions.

The Prime Minister

The principles and the arrangements for authorising interceptions remain as described and recommended by the Birkett committee (Cmnd. 283). So far as the practice of answering parliamentary Questions on these matters is concerned, I refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave him on 2nd May 1978.
