To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many bomb explosions there have been at the premises of Short Bros. since 25 May 1989; and if he is giving this firm security advice about future employees.

The security of Shorts' property is kept under review and, in line with longstanding Government policy on such matters, I know the right hon.
