Armagh City: Traffic Wardens
Lord Kilclooney asked Her Majesty’s Government:

How many traffic wardens were on duty in Armagh city centre between 3:30 and 4:00pm on 29 October. [HL2126]

The Minister of State, Northern Ireland Office (Lord Rooker): The deployment of traffic wardens is an operational matter for the Police Service of Northern Ireland. The PSNI does not disclose specific numbers of police officers on duty at points in time, and would apply the same criteria to traffic wardens until such times as DRD assumes responsibility for them in autumn 2006.
