HC Deb 10 July 1990 vol 176 c120W
Mr. George

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) what plans he has to introduce a system of statutory regulation for the private security industry;

(2) if he will publish the membership of the Home Office working group on self-regulation of the private security industry and the date when the group's report will be published.

Mr. John Patten

We are considering, in the light of the report of the working group on the self-regulation of the private security industry, a range of options for improving the regulation of the industry. The working group included representatives from the Home Office, the Department of Trade and Industry, the Association of Chief Police Officers, the British Security Industry Association, the International Professional Security Association and the National Supervisory Council for Intruder Alarms.

When consideration of this issue has been completed, we will decide what circulation to give the working group's report.
