To ask Her Majesty's Government what arrangements they plan to put in place to ensure that private investigation businesses are properly regulated and held to account.
30 June 2014
We expect the regulations to licence the activity of private investigations to come into force in 2015.
We also expect the introduction of the statutory licensing of private security businesses to come into force in 2015, followed thereafter by private
investigation businesses. We are continuing to work with the Security Industry Authority and industry on both regulations.
