§ Mr. Hume
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) how many people whose names were submitted as employees by contractors on Property Services Agency contracts in Great Britain have been found unsuitable for work on the respective contracts each year since 1979; and on what ground such persons were deemed unsuitable;
(2) how many employees of contractors on Property Services Agency contracts in Northern Ireland have been found unsuitable for work on the respective contracts each year since 1979; and on what grounds such persons were deemed unsuitable.
§ Mr. Hume
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will make a statement outlining the means by which the Property Services Agency establishes that a person is unsuitable to work on given contracts with particular reference to decisions made on security grounds; what evidence is given and from whom; what checks are made with other relevant sources; how unsuitability, on various grounds, is actually assessed; and where the final decision on such matters lies.
§ Sir George Young
It would not be appropriate to disclose the criteria on which control of access to military and civil establishments is based.
