HC Deb 12 February 2004 vol 417 cc1672-3W
Mr. Burstow

To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Department for Constitutional Affairs how many security passes have been reported(a) lost and (b) stolen by staff in his Department in the last 12 months. [151581]

Mr. Leslie

In the last 12 months, 113 security passes have been reported lost and 16 reported stolen by staff within the Department for Constitutional Affairs. One security pass has been reported lost in the Scotland Office and there have been no reported lost or stolen passes in the Wales Office.

When a security pass is reported lost or stolen, appropriate steps are taken to reduce the risk of unauthorised access into any of the Department's buildings.
