Departmental Security

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 11 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department pursuant to the Answer of 27 January 2009, Official Report, column 284W, on departmental security, how many lost or stolen security passes have since been recovered. (254553)

The Departmental Security Unit do not keep records of Home Office HQ passes found or recovered as lost or stolen passes are deactivated as soon as they are reported missing/stolen and are deleted from the system, thereby preventing access to Home Office buildings.

In the calendar year 2008, UK Border Agency reported that 26 UKBA passes had been found (warrant cards are included in this figures, as for some business areas they are the same document).
