Jalal Ahmed

Volume 489: debated on Friday 20 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether Jalal Ahmed has received security clearance in respect of his employment as a baggage handler at Luton Airport; whether he has access to military aircraft; and if he will make a statement. (264350)

Personnel and physical security checks are in place for all staff working airside at UK airports, but it would be inappropriate for the detail of those checks to be placed in the public domain. A baggage handler at Luton airport would have no legitimate access to any military aircraft. We are currently reviewing personnel security measures across the transport sector in the light of the report delivered last July by Stephen Boys Smith.
