To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what surveys his Department has made of the views of people living within the Metropolitan police area on the efficiency of the police force; and if he will make a statement. 
The British Crime Survey asks all respondents a general question regarding how good a job they think the police are doing. Findings for this question are available by police force area and therefore for the Metropolitan police area. The latest findings from this question have been published in "Crime in England and Wales 2001–02: Supplementary Volume 01/03" (table 8.03). A copy can be found in the Library. These results can also be found in the Police Performance Monitoring 2001–02 publication.
