HL Deb 20 October 1986 vol 481 c156WA
Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether it has proved possible to implement the policy of not tapping the telephone conversations of Members of Parliament in the case of calls between an MP and a person whose telephone is being tapped, and if so how this has been achieved.

The Earl of Caithness

We have nothing to add to the assurances referred to in the reply given on 31st July 1986 to a Question on this subject by the noble Lord (Official Report, 31st July 1986, col. 1090).
