National Bureaucracy Advisor on Police Reform

Volume 470: debated on Friday 25 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department who the current National Bureaucracy Advisor on Police Reform is; and whether the position is vacant. (176054)

The National Bureaucracy Advisor role has been vacant since July 2006. Sir Ronnie Flanagan’s Review of Policing, which began on 26 April 2007, is taking forward the work on reducing bureaucracy in the service.

Recommendations for reducing police bureaucracy were made in Sir Ronnie’s interim report and are being taken forward by the National Policing Improvement Agency. The agency will be shaping the staffing and leadership of this work to meet the requirements made in Sir Ronnie’s report.

Sir Ronnie’s final report will be published shortly.
