Police: Londonderry

Volume 454: debated on Wednesday 13 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many police officers were deployed in relation to the policing of the Apprentice Boys parade in Londonderry on (a) 2 December 2006 and (b) 3 December 2005. (108513)

PSNI deployed 603 officers this year and 588 in 2005.

While this year a greater number of officers were deployed in high visibility equipment, no police officers were deployed on the parade route in public order equipment.

It is also worth noting that the military were not deployed on the streets for any parade this year.
