HC Deb 28 February 2001 vol 363 c666W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if the telephone and simcard of Juliet McBride are in the possession of the Ministry of Defence Police at Aldermaston; if the text and other messages have been transcribed or recorded; if the Chief Constable of the Ministry of Defence Police has appointed(a) a Ministry of Defence Police officer or (b) an officer from another force to investigate; and if he will make a statement. [151288]

Dr. Moonie

On 18 January 2001, Ms McBride entered the AWE Aldermaston site without authorisation. She was approached and ejected by the Ministry of Defence Police (MDP) officers. Subsequently, Ms McBride reported the loss of her mobile telephone while on the site. This was found in the MDP vehicle used when removing Ms McBride from AWE and was returned to its owner on 19 January 2001. The Deputy Chief Constable of the MDP has appointed a MDP Chief Superintendent to investigate the circumstances surrounding the recovery of Ms McBride's telephone. It would be inappropriate to make any further comment pending the results of this investigation.
