To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what information he has on the number of complaints received by the Police Complaints Authority originating from Newham in the last two years; and how many (a) were investigated and (b) are being investigated.

[holding answer 16 July 1990]: We have no such information. Under the provisions of part IX of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984, there are matters for the Police Complaints Authority and the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis. I understand from the commissioner that this information is not available in the form requested and could be obtained only at disproportionate cost.
