To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what standards are in place for the provision of occupational health services for armed police officers; and what arrangements are made for the monitoring of the (a) physical and (b) mental health of such officers. (246005)

The provision of occupational health services for police officers and police staff is the responsibility of the individual chief constable and police authority. All forces have a clearly defined duty of care to their personnel under health and safety legislation.
