Airport Security

Volume 449: debated on Monday 11 September 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which airports have (a) 24 hour security and (b) security provision during operating hours. (87299)

I have been asked to reply.

The Department for Transport is responsible for regulating and monitoring aviation security in the UK under the provisions of the Aviation Security Act 1982, as amended by the Aviation and Maritime Security Act 1990.

It would be inappropriate to comment on the specific security arrangements which have been put in place at UK airports.
