This information is not held centrally and could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

Due diligence is conducted at local management level. As a consequence of routine MGS assessments against UK Working Time Regulations, no Ministry of Defence Guard Service employee will involuntarily work more than 48 hours per week (gross) on average over a 17 week reference period.
