Diego Garcia

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN 203500, tabled on 1 July 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, which Government Department or Office keeps a list of flights which passed through Diego Garcia from January 2002 to January 2009.

Records on flight departures and arrivals on Diego Garcia are held by the British Indian Ocean Territory immigration authorities. Daily occurrence logs, which record the flights landing and taking off, cover the period since 2003. Though there are some limited records from 2002, I understand they are incomplete due to water damage.
