UIN 209539, tabled on 26 September 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether the principles published in the Consolidated Guidance to Intelligence Officers and Service Personnel 2011 are applied to assessment of the risk that shared data may be used for targeted killing by foreign states.

It is a long standing policy not to comment on intelligence matters. I would reiterate to the Hon. Member that all of the UK's intelligence sharing with Foreign States is undertaken within a robust legal framework, and is subject to rigorous ministerial, parliamentary and judicial oversight, including through the Consolidated Guidance.
