asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) how many attempts have been made since 1st July 1976 on the lives or homes of people who are currently receiving police protection;(2) how many people in Northern Ireland were receiving police protection at 1st June 1977; how many police personnel are involved; and how many are used (

a) as static guards on homes and ( b) as drivers.

24 people were receiving police protection on 1st June 1977. As at 24th June no attempts had been made on their lives since 1st July 1976. It would not be in the interests of security to disclose details of police deployments for protection duties. Matters of protection and personal security are kept continually under review by the Chief Constable.
