§ Mr. Nellist
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what regulations he proposes to introduce to limit private firms' use of uniforms in the style of police officers; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. John Patten
We have no plans, at present, to introduce such regulations. I am pleased to note that the British Standards Institution has recently issued, for public comment, a draft British standard code of practice for manned security services, which makes recommendations on the provision of uniforms by security companies.
