§ Mr. Bercow
To ask the Secretary of State for International Development what new measures her Department took in 2001–02 to protect its property from theft or damage. 
§ Hilary Benn
As part of the refurbishment of our new London Headquarters, a number of additional security measures were introduced. Additional external CCTV cameras were installed, and a purpose-built security control room constructed. Improved external doors, grills and locks were also fitted, and security pillars were installed to monitor and control access into the building. A new system for asset control has also been introduced, whereby valuable assets can be tagged, and their movement monitored.
Similar measures will be implemented during future refurbishment of our other two UK buildings. In the meantime our East Kilbride office is currently being fitted with secure storage for up to 30 bicycles.
