To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 5 January 2015 to Question 219031, whether there were any discussions between UK Ministers or officials and members of the US administration, US officials or legislators on the Senate Committee on Intelligence's study into the Central Intelligence Agency's Detention and Interrogation Program from its commencement in 2009, other than those referred to in his Answer.

Ministers have met members of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee, just as they have met members of other Senate Committees (individuals are often members of several different Committees) on various occasions during the period in question. At no point during any of those meetings did Ministers raise or discuss the Committee’s study, or report, into the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation programme.

I would also refer the hon. Member to my answer of 5 January 2015 (PQ 219031).
