asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what guidelines have been issued by the Association of Chief Police Officers on the Public Order Act and the Police and Criminal Evidence Act; and if he will arrange for copies to be placed in the Library.

I am not aware of any guidelines issued on these Acts by the Association of Chief Police Officers, although the association has produced forms for use in connection with procedures required by the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. Guidance on the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 has been issued by the Home Office in circulars 88/1985 (which has the ALPO forms as an appendix) and circular 89/1985; and on the Public Order Act 1986 in circulars 77/1986 and 11/1987. Copies are in the Library.
