Ministry of Defence Police: Overtime

Volume 463: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what assessment he has made of the impact of the decision of the Ministry of Defence Police to cancel all non-mandatory staff overtime on (a) the security of military bases and (b) the capacity of his Department (i) to implement its anti-terrorism strategy and (ii) to meet its financial targets.

I am unable to comment on security matters in detail as to do so would, or would be likely to prejudice national security. The Chief Executive of the Ministry of Defence Police and Guarding Agency is managing this reduction in overtime.
