Ministry of Defence Police and Guarding Agency

Volume 470: debated on Thursday 17 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence at what locations Ministry of Defence police officers have been replaced with (a) civilian police forces and (b) private security forces since 2003. (177588)

The Ministry of Defence Police have never been replaced by a civilian police force or a private security force at any functioning Defence establishment. However, when establishments close and all MOD functions have withdrawn it is possible that private security forces are used, but this would provide a guarding not policing service.
