GCHQ Centenary Debate: MP pays tribute to constituents who work at GCHQ

11th July 2019

Speaking in a Parliamentary debate to commemorate the centenary of GCHQ, Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown pays tribute to the people who work there, in particular constituents who work there.

On the comment by the director of the GCHQ that its time is now, does my hon. Friend agree that the threat against this country and its citizens is becoming ever more multi-faceted and ever more universal, that therefore the task that GCHQ undertakes on our behalf is ever more needed, and that we should pay tribute, as he has done, to the people who work there? I would like to pay particular tribute to my constituents who work there.

I am grateful to my hon. Friend, who puts the point well. It is an extremely complex threat landscape, but I am pleased that there are people working there—my constituents and his—who are equal to the task.
