Police Ombudsman

Volume 458: debated on Wednesday 14 March 2007

14. To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what response he has made to the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland’s recent report. (126348)

The Government acknowledge that the Police Ombudsman’s investigation has succeeded in bringing to light serious failings of duty by a small number of police officers over the period 1991 to 2003. The Chief Constable has accepted the report’s recommendations and work on reinvestigating the cases has already begun. Where sufficient evidence can be obtained, prosecutions will be brought.
