Police: Airports

Volume 468: debated on Monday 26 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the answer of 20 November 2007, Official Report, column 680W, on police: airports, (1) which non-designated airports have a routine police presence; (168504)

(2) whether information on the size of the routine police presence at (a) designated and (b) non-designated airports is held centrally.

The uniformed police contribution to airport security in the UK is a local matter for the airport operator and the police force for the area concerned. Whether an airport is designated or not, neither party is required routinely to provide information centrally on the police presence.
