To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if he will publish impact assessments made prior to the introduction of Operational MGS Employment Contracts for civilian guards at UK military bases.
13 September 2021
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) Guard Service is an in-house guarding service provided to the MOD, Executive Agencies and Foreign Governments' Visiting Forces. As such it would not be appropriate to publish any impact assessments made prior to the introduction of Operational MGS Employment Contracts.
In addition, impact assessments pertaining to employment contracts are commercially sensitive and publication could negatively impact upon the ability of the MGS to compete for the delivery of Unarmed Guarding tasks across the Defence estate.
