To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will list the countries where UK personnel are involved in providing training in interrogation techniques; whether the hooding of those being interrogated forms part of the training; and if he will make a statement. 1167W

The Government does not offer training in interrogation techniques to overseas governments. Our training on interviewing techniques for police, military and intelligence agencies complies with UK and international law. This training does not involve the use of hooding.
