HC Deb 16 April 1981 vol 3 c257W
Mr. Cryer

asked the Lord Privy Seal what conditions are imposed restricting access to Diego Garcia; whether any restrictions are imposed on hon. Members of Parliament; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Luce

Access is governed by the 1976 Exchange of Notes between the British and American Governments—Cmnd. 6413. In general, it is restricted to those who have an operational need to visit.

Any question of access by hon. Members would be considered in the light of this.
