HC Deb 21 October 1986 vol 102 cc813-4W
Mr. Kaufman

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer how many staff of Her Majesty's Customs and Excise were on duty in Heathrow terminal 3 on 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 16 October; and how many were on duty on the corresponding dates in 1985, and on each of the first six days of October of the current year.

Mr. Lawson

For operational reasons it is not policy to disclose the number of Customs staff on duty at specific locations. The number of staff on duty at Terminal 3 Heathrow varies according to management's assessment of the risks. Resident staff are supported by mobile teams and specialist investigators who move between terminals as the need arises.
