Alison McGovern – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Alison McGovern on 2016-01-13.

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what plans he has to publish written guidlines for British drone strikes.

Mr Tobias Ellwood

Unmanned drones are no different from any other weapon system and subject to the same legal and other frameworks. We have no plans to publish any guidelines. I refer the hon. Member to the evidence provided by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Defence (Michael Fallon) on 16 December 2015 to the Joint Committee on Human Rights.
