§ Mr. Michael
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make it his policy to take urgent steps to introduce a statutory scheme of regulation for the private security industry. 
§ Mr. Maclean
[holding answer 12 June 1995]: I am currently looking again at the policies in this area. The Home Affairs Select Committee report on the industry is a timely contribution to the debate on regulation and has some very helpful recommendations. We will respond as soon as possible.
