§ Lord Astor of Hever
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether detailed plans have been made to set up floating security barriers in Royal Navy bases to protect ships that are alongside from a seaborne terrorist attack. [HL269]
§ Lord Bach
Security practices and procedures in place at all three HM naval bases are subject to regular review and are adjusted or enhanced according to assessed threats. It is not Ministry of Defence policy to comment on specific security measures and I am therefore withholding information about details under Exemption 1 (Defence, security and international relations) of the Code of Practice on access to Government Information.
