HC Deb 03 December 2003 vol 415 c56W
10. Mr. Beggs:

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what recent discussions his Department has held with Belfast International Airports Authority regarding future policing arrangements at the airport; and if he will make a statement. [141224]

Jane Kennedy:

A Security Co-ordinating Committee, chaired by a NIO Official and including representatives from PSNI, RAF Aldergrove, Department for Transport, Department for Rural Development and the Airport Authority, oversees the provision of security at Belfast International Airport. Earlier this year a review of security was carried out by PSNI, the results of which were approved by the Security Coordinating Committee.

The implementation of these recommendations will impact on policing numbers at the airport and the Airport Authority has apprised the Department of their implementation plan.
