HC Deb 12 November 1987 vol 122 c221W
Mr. Martyn Jones

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will name and give the precise location of the United States facility in the area of Harrogate through which all telephone calls to Eastern bloc countries are routed; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Ian Stewart

I have been asked to reply.

There is a United States communications facility near Harrogate at Menwith hill but I am not prepared to comment in detail on its operational role.
