HC Deb 25 May 1994 vol 244 c164W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will list the specialist operations at Scotland Yard together with their annual cost for the last year for which figures are available.

Mr. Charles Wardle

In the interests of security, it is Home Office policy not to reveal details, including costs, of individual special operation branches. The annual staffing cost of the branches to 31 March 1994 is around £158 million. This figure represents the average of salaries for the ranks and grades involved.
