William Hague comments on the CIA 'torture report'

William Hague MP, speaking to Anthony Baxter on The Evening Show at the opening of Greenwich University's new £80m library and academic building, commented on the UK intelligence services in relation to the recently published US Senate report into CIA interrogation methods of terror suspects.

He said: "I think we’ll all have to read the report. What I do know as Foreign Secretary for the last four years, and until a few months ago being responsible for some of our intelligence agencies, is that in this country, our intelligence agencies not only do a fantastic job of keeping this country and the people in it safe, but they also have a very strong regard for upholding the law and the human rights of people all over the world.

"So we can speak for our own agencies, and we will have to read the report, of course, about what is said about the CIA and what they did in the past."
