Police: Recruitment

Volume 487: debated on Thursday 29 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland pursuant to the answer of 20 January 2009, on police recruitment in Northern Ireland, whether the 50/50 recruitment policy will be ended when the 30 per cent. Roman Catholic recruitment figure is reached if that takes place before 2011. (252959)

We are committed to reaching 30 per cent. Catholic composition within the PSNI regulars. When this target is reached the temporary provisions will lapse.
