To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland (1) how many (a) Protestant, (b) Roman Catholic and (c) non-determined applicants for the Police Service of Northern Ireland there were in (i) the most recent recruitment competition and (ii) all recruitment competitions since the inception of the 50/50 recruitment process; (281530)

(2) how many (a) Protestant, (b) Roman Catholic and (c) non-determined appointees to the Police Service of Northern Ireland there have been since the inception of the 50/50 recruitment process.

That is an operational matter for the Chief Constable. I have asked him to reply directly to the hon. Member, and a copy of his letter will be placed in the Library of the House.
