The revised Overseas Security and Justice Assistance guidance was published in January 2017. It is the longstanding policy of successive governments not to comment on intelligence matters. The UK-US relationship is grounded in our history and shared traditions. In both countries, intelligence work takes place within a strong legal framework.
