An estimate of the number of visitor stickers used on the Parliamentary Estate in each of the last 12 months based on number of visitors counted through search points is in the following table.

2006 2007
June 102,896
July 108,080
August 114,161
September 119,778
October 92,730
November 94,911
December 45,853
January 75,691
February 72,312
March 85,491
April 62,853
May 92,463

These figures are based on numbers provided by the Metropolitan Police using counting devices at search points. The counting device at Norman Porch is proving unreliable due to an ongoing technical fault, so Visitors Tour figures have been used instead. There may be a slight under-estimate due to Members or Peers guests using Norman Porch who will not be included in the Visitor Tour figures.
