HC Deb 25 May 1972 vol 837 c437W
32. Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations have been made to him concerning the growth of private security firms; whether he will consider the desirability of bringing them under some system of public control; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Carlisle

My right hon. Friend has received a few suggestions that the activities of private security organisations have increased and should be brought under some form of control. He has at present no proposals for that purpose.
