unstar this property answer text <p>The following information about decisions on the new security contract arrangements was published in March 2014:</p><p>“In March 2015, the current contract with the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) to provide armed protection, policing and security officer functions will expire. Over the last year, the Security Arrangements Renewal Programme (SARP) Board has been working to analyse options and make a recommendation on new contract arrangements to be introduced next year. That recommendation was endorsed by the Lords House Committee and the Commons Commission.</p><p>The agreed recommendation is that the two Houses should renegotiate with the MPS to continue to provide security officer functions, armed protection and policing, whilst moving the provision of the search and screening function for the three main public entrances (Black Rod's Garden, Cromwell Green and Portcullis House) to a specialist commercial provider. The Clerk of the House and the Clerk of the Parliaments have now written to the Metropolitan Police Commissioner requesting new arrangements from 2015, and a commercial procurement for search and screening will start soon.</p><p>This is a major contract for Parliament, both in terms of its financial value and its central role in ensuring the security of parliamentarians, employees and visitors to the Parliamentary Estate. As well as continuing to benefit from the expertise and experience of the Metropolitan Police officers and staff, new search and screening arrangements at the busiest public entrances will be better able to provide the greater flexibility and scalability needed to meet Parliament's changing requirements for public access”.</p><p>Discussions with the Metropolitan Police Service on future arrangements are continuing. Security matters are not discussed on the floor of the House and the House Committee has agreed to the initial approach taken by the Security Arrangements Renewal Programme Board. That Committee will be further consulted during the process. I have no plans to initiate a debate on the floor of the House.</p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>Practice in recent years is well-established: Private Members' Bills introduced in the House of Lords are offered Second Reading slots in the order in which they receive their First Reading. Second Readings for Private Members' Bills introduced this session have been scheduled on Friday 27 June and Friday 18 July; further Second Readings will be arranged in due course. A ballot to determine the order in which Private Members' Bills receive their First Reading will be introduced from the start of the new Parliament (3rd Report of the Procedure Committee, Session 2013-14).</p><p>For Bills that receive a Second Reading, formal consideration of their remaining stages will be arranged where no amendments are tabled and where the Member in charge so requests. Where Bills receive a Second Reading but require further substantive consideration of amendments, they will be competing for time with Private Members' Bills that are received from the House of Commons and Private Members' Bills introduced in this House that are still awaiting a Second Reading.</p><p>My noble friend the Government Chief Whip will endeavour to facilitate the progress of bills in each of those categories.</p><p> </p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The amounts spent by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) on external lawyers in each of the last four financial years is shown in the following table. Both organisations financial reporting systems are configured to provide information based on financial rather than calendar years.</p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="3"><p><strong>Expenditure on external lawyers</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>CPS</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>SFO</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010-11</p></td><td><p>£139,219,000</p></td><td><p>£4,523,561</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011-12</p></td><td><p>£115,329,000</p></td><td><p>£4,822,253</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>£118,908,000</p></td><td><p>£5,956,633</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>£122,929,000</p></td><td><p>£19,077,467</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The SFO figures include the cost of external counsel, TSol and other legal fees, but do not include temporary agency staff. The SFO spend on counsel fees is published in its annual report. The increased figures for 2012-13 and 2013-14 reflect the revised treatment of VAT on some fees, repayment of some VAT which had been incorrectly recovered in earlier years, and costs relating to some very large cases and other litigation.</p><p>The SFO's requirement for additional expenditure in 2013-14 has already been set out to the House in documentation published around its Spring Supplementary Estimate, which has been scrutinised by the Justice Select Committee. The nature of the SFO's work means that it can occasionally incur significant additional legal expenses for its very largest and mostcomplex investigations and prosecutions, such as that into Libor.</p><p>The CPS figures are drawn from the CPS's core financial accounting system and they are consistent with the CPS's audited accounts. The great majority of fees for legal work paid by the CPS relates to the services of self-employed barristers and solicitors for crown court casework. The CPS also engages barristers and solicitors to undertake advocacy as agents in magistrates' courts sessions and, occasionally, to provide legal advice on discrete areas of specialist policy.</p><p> </p>

answer
unstar this property answer text <p>The figures below give the number of lawyers employed in the Treasury Solicitor's Department (TSol), as at 31<sup>st</sup> March each year and to date for 2014.</p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Year</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Full Time Equivalent</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st May 2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>910</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td> </td><td> </td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2013</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>572</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2012</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>565</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2011</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>464</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong> 31st March 2010</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>451</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p>The figures given are for permanent staff.</p><p>Since 2010 TSol has been engaged on a process of transferring lawyers from other departments to TSol as part of the the Shared Legal Services Programme. Sharing legal services brings considerable benefits including greater flexibility and resiliance, more efficient deployment of legal resources, more opportunities for savings and improved knowledge sharing, which in turn supports consistency of legal advice across Government.</p><p> </p>
