Police Bureaucracy

Volume 474: debated on Monday 21 April 2008

20. To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans she has to reduce police bureaucracy. (199743)

In his recent Review of Policing, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Constabulary, Sir Ronnie Flanagan, examined the issue of police bureaucracy.

Sir Ronnie's wide ranging recommendations have been accepted and work continues apace to remove unnecessary bureaucratic burdens from police officers.

My right hon. Friend the Home Secretary's strong endorsement of Sir Ronnie's measures is clear evidence of our commitment to bear down on unnecessary bureaucracy in policing.
