Stop and Search

Asked what Sir Ronnie Flanagan was proposing regarding Stop and Search, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) replied that people should wait until Sir Flanagan had published his final report. However, he had made clear on page 15, paragraph 1.26, recommendation 9 of his interim report that, ‘the review will give urgent consideration to how Stop and Account/Search can be better administered and the bureaucracy surrounding it significantly reduced. In doing so, I will consult widely (and as part of my existing Equality Impact Assessment) both with key leaders and stakeholders from a diverse range of communities and from within the service’. It was very clear, when the Flanagan report was published in the autumn, that this was an issue that he had identified as an area for potential reductions in bureaucracy. There were numerous paragraphs in his report, which made clear recommendations on it, and it was clearly something that was very much in the public domain and something that the Government was considering very actively.
