Departmental Security

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many security passes his Department has issued in each of the last five years. (301556)

It is not possible to provide figures for each of the past five years because the security pass database is regularly refreshed and does not retain details of deleted security passes issued for the core Home Office at 2 Marsham street. There are currently 8,551 active security passes for 2 Marsham street. This figure includes permanent core Home Office staff and contractors, temporary passes issued to visitors to the building and other HMG staff, many of whom are not permanently based at Marsham street.
