Airports: Security

Volume 464: debated on Thursday 11 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many security alerts there have been at each commercial airport in the UK in each of the last 10 years. (156477)

The UK national aviation security programme states that airports, airlines, in-flight caterers and listed air cargo agents report to the Department for Transport any act of unlawful interference or occurrence that may affect the security of civil aviation within their spheres of operation. It would be inappropriate to comment on the number of security alerts at UK airports.
