16th Jul 2021
To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with the private security industry about protecting the (1) mental, and (2) physical, well-being of licensed professionals in that industry; and what steps they are taking as a result.

The Government and the Security Industry Authority are aware of the significant impact the pandemic has had on both the private security sector and the night-time economy. The Government has implemented a range of measures to support businesses during the pandemic.

As required by the Private Security Industry Act 2001, the Security Industry Authority regulates the private security sector and advises Home Office Ministers regarding its role and functions. However, all matters regarding the deployment and well-being of private security operatives sits beyond the current regulatory regime and with individual private security businesses, as their employers.
