Staffordshire Police: Correspondence

Volume 481: debated on Tuesday 21 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will ask the Chief Constable of Staffordshire Police to provide a substantive reply to the hon. Member for Walsall, North to his letter of 4 September concerning a constituent (reference: NH/JF); and if she will inquire into the reasons for the time taken to reply. (228601)

Neither the Home Office nor its Ministers are able to comment on or intervene in individual matters. The Chief Officer is responsible for the day-to-day operational management of the force, not the Home Secretary. Matters relating to the investigation of a crime and the deployment of resources are the responsibility of the local Chief Officer. It is however understood that the hon. Member received a reply from the Chief Constable of Staffordshire Police on 20 October.
