To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, for what reasons HMRC is seeking to outsource security at its offices rather than utilising a directly employed workforce.

HMRC’s security arrangements are made up of a number of elements including an Access Control Service. Contractors already provide this service at the majority of HMRC sites with these arrangements. The engagement of a specialist security supplier at all sites will provide HMRC with a consistent, standardised and responsive Access Control Service that will safeguard people, information and assets through a readily available, industry standard trained, specialist security workforce. The flexibility of the service will also enable HMRC to meet future service standards effectively.
