Mr. Baker

To ask the President of the Council what is the establishment of uniformed police officers assigned to Parliament; and what was the cost of this for 1997–98. [39728]

Mrs. Ann Taylor

It is not the practice to state the numerical strength of the Parliamentary Security Force. However, the security costs for the House of Commons for the year 1997–98 were £12.64 million.
