Lord Brougham and Vaux

asked Her Majesty's Government:

When they plan to release more records of the wartime Special Operations Executive.

Baroness Chalker of Wallasey

My right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary announced on 26 November 1993 that a review of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) archives had begun. Since then, the records on the Far East, Scandinavia, the Middle East and North Africa have been made available to the public. The next batch, on Eastern Europe, were opened by the Public Records Office on 9 June 1995. Further SOE records will be made available in due course.
