The Ministry of Defence has never maintained a comprehensive database of passes issued to defence contractors for the whole of the defence estate. The information is not held centrally and could therefore be provided only at disproportionate cost. For information about passes issued to employees of private defence companies for access to London buildings, I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave him on 29 March 2010, Hansard, columns 641-42W.
