  • Contacting MI6 for information

    Do any of our British friends know the correct procedure for contacting MI6 regarding information in their archives? The contact form on their website seems confined to reporting threats et al only.

    AFAIK there is no procedure - the archives are closed to the public.
    A few years ago here was a dispute over the identity of an American double agent in France in the 1780s and it was recognised that papers identifying him were by then in MI6's archives. Access to historians was refused on the grounds that MI6 never reveal information on agents no matter how long dead.
