HC Deb 08 January 2001 vol 360 c353W
Mr. Key

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many vehicles are assigned to the Army Security Service; under whose command they are operated; and if he will make a statement. [143710]

Mr. Spellar

There is no such organisation as the Army Security Service. I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the Army Security Patrol vehicles belonging to the newly established Military Provost Guard Service (MPGS).

In total there are 23 vehicles held by MPGS. The vehicles are based at various locations across the country and are operated under the command of the Head of Establishment to which they are assigned.
