Dear Simon Lock,

Many thanks for this.

A clarification please: are these statistics cumulative? Ie, do these figures represent the number of new licences each year, or the total number of licences?

Ie, are there currently 10,000 or 100,000 licensed security guards?

Yours sincerely,

Josie Appleton
