All contractors providing consultancy or other services who require access to a DEFRA building are issued with appropriate security passes, subject to security clearance procedures. When access is no longer required, the passes are withdrawn. Disaggregating the number of security passes issued to contractors providing consultancy services in the last 12 months would incur disproportionate costs.
