Subject: Asbestos Contaminated UK UFO Files

A number of old Defence Intelligence Staff files are
contaminated with asbestos because of the location in which they
were stored. This precludes release until such time as they can
be safely scanned. A number of UFO files are involved and this
has led to previous adverse comment from conspiracy theorists.
Tuesday's answer to a Parliamentary Question on the subject
provides a useful update:


[See: Departmental Records - a slight scroll-down --ebk]

Essentially, the scanning project was originally expected to
finish in July 2007 but has had to be extended by six months, in
view of the amount of work involved, which proved significantly
greater than first anticipated. FOI requests frustrated by the
contamination are being processed in the order they were
received, as the relevant files become available.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
