Police: Northern Ireland

Volume 684: debated on Thursday 20 July 2006

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether Patten ecommendations 132, 133, 143, 144, 146, 148 and 149 relating to training, education and development of the Police Service of Northern Ireland have been implemented in full; and, if not, whether this is having any negative impact on policing in Northern Ireland.[HL6658]

I am advised by the PSNI that although full compliance with recommendations 132, 133, 143, 144, 146, 148 and 149 has not yet been totally achieved, the progress to date has been significant and has had a cumulative positive impact on policing in Northern Ireland.

The Oversight Commissioner will, however, continue to monitor each recommendation for the remainder of his oversight mandate.
