Another item on the IMC’s to-do list?

As I noted when the consultation on the proposed changes to the taxi regulations was announced, the IMC has a to-do list for the governments regarding paramilitary involvement in certain sectors of the economy. And yesterday the NIO announced movement on another item on that list, according to the BBC report anyway.. new regulation of security firms to remove the possibility of involvement by “unscrupulous operators” [who could they mean? – Ed]proposals here[pdf file]. Although it’s worth noting that this will replace a licencing regime set in place via temporary legislation, contained in Part VII of the Terrorism Act 2000.. a regime that the NIO has, already, not paid close enough attention to with one company.. at least.
