HC Deb 09 April 1987 vol 114 cc344-5W
Mr. Dalyell

asked the Prime Minister what is the current level of fees payable to British Telecom for the interception of telephone communications; on what basis the fee is calculated; with which other companies Her Majesty's Government have contracts in respect of such services; and if she will make a statement.

The Prime Minister

It has been the practice of successive Governments not to comment on the details of the operation of the interception arrangements.
