To ask the Secretary of State for Defence for what reason a security pass was issued to BAE Systems executive Julian Scopes by his Department; when the security pass was originally issued; and to which premises Mr. Scopes is given access with this security pass. (126500)

Ministry of Defence security policy allows for establishment passes to be issued to contractors who make frequent visits to specific MOD sites to meet business requirements. In accordance with this policy, Mr. Scopes was issued with a contractor pass in December 2005. This pass, which expired on 31 December 2006, allowed him access to Main Building, the Old War Office and St. George’s Court.
