§ Mr. Jim Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what information he has received on the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden. 
I have been asked to reply.
We have received a number of reports concerning Osama bin Laden. It is the practice of successive governments not to comment on intelligence matters. The Security and Intelligence Agencies are outside the scope of the Code of Practice on Access to Government Information (Paragraph 6, Part I). However we and our partners in the campaign against international terrorism will continue to use all means at our disposal to bring Osama bin Laden and other Al Qaeda leaders to justice.
