HC Deb 09 December 1993 vol 234 c336W
Mr. Cohen

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement about the operation of his Department's sensitive documents unit; how many staff are employed in its operation; and approximately how many documents per annum come within its purview.

Mr. Norris

The Department's record service employs four staff to register and manage classified files. The total number of documents processed each year is not currently known, but the Department of Transport's file list is being computerised, which will enable analysis of files held.
