Baggage Screening

Volume 703: debated on Tuesday 8 July 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What action has been taken to follow up the people and baggage screening trials conducted on the London rail and Underground in January and February 2006; and what was the cost of these trials. [HL4548]

I refer the noble Baroness to my Written Ministerial Statement made to the House on Thursday, 26 June 2008 [Official Report, cols. WS 126-28].

The costs of the trials, including the public attitudes research, were just under £700,000 and were met by the Department for Transport.
