HC Deb 28 March 2001 vol 365 c657W
Mr. Bruce George

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations the Better Regulation Task Force has received regarding the consultation paper on the Government's proposals for regulation of the private security industry in England and Wales opposing the(a) regulation of in-house employees, (b) regulation of security system installers and (c) security companies; and if he will list the organisations making representations in each case. [155465]

Mr. Stringer

I have been asked to reply.

The Better Regulation Task Force in its report, `Fit Person Criteria', which was published in May 1999, made recommendations on the regulation of the private security industry.

Organisations contacted by the Better Regulation Task Force, as part of its study, are listed in Annexe F of the report, a copy of which is in the Library of the House.

Subsequent to publishing the report, the Task Force received one letter referring to the Government's consultation paper on the regulation of the private security industry. It came from the Association of Chief Police Officers Intruders Alarm Group and it supported the Government's proposals.
