§ Mr. Dalyell
asked the Minister for the Civil Service if, when he next meets the First Division Association, he will discuss the Civil Service-wide implications of the withdrawal of trade union rights from GCHQ, Cheltenham.
§ Mr. Hayhoe
I have no plans to meet the First Division Association. I am always willing to consider representations made by trade unions on Civil Service-wide matters. If and when a meeting does take place which touches on this question, I shall reiterate what has repeatedly been made clear: that it is emphatically not the Government's intention to extend the measures in force at GCHQ beyond those agencies whose primary functions are concerned with security and intelligence.
