§ Lord Kennet
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether GCHQ is collaborating or concerned with the US Intelligence Services in the Counter-Proliferation Initiative and with the proposed concentration of sensor-derived intelligence within one agency in the US Defense Department and the CIA.
§ Baroness Chalker of Wallasey
It is long-standing government practice not to comment in detail on intelligence matters. Furthermore, the operations of US intelligence agencies are a matter for the US Government.
