Britain warns EU to drop spying debate states over Echelon  

Ian Black in Brussels Saturday April 8, 2000  

Britain is trying to stifle a European Union debate about its 
involvement in a US-led economic espionage network by warning its 
partners that their own secrets could be exposed.  

With Portugal planning to raise concerns about the controversial 
Echelon surveillance system - a network of satellites and listening 
posts - the government signalled yesterday that EU member states 
should think carefully before allowing any discussion.
