The Chagos Archipelago were cleared of inhabitants by the UK from 1965 onwards to prevent interruptions to military operations.

A UK Foreign Office memo of 1980 recommended to then Foreign Secretary that “no journalists should be allowed to visit Diego Garcia” and that visits by MPs be kept to a minimum to keep out those “who deliberately stir up unwelcome questions”.[1]
