§ Lord Lester of Herne Hill
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will ensure that all passengers and luggage carried by Eurostar are searched effectively to diminish the risk of terrorist bomb attacks.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Transport (Viscount Goschen)
All passengers and luggage carried by Eurostar are already liable to search. EPS are required to search a percentage of passengers and baggage—the percentage varies depending on the levels of threat and risk as assessed by Government agencies.
