Policing White Paper

Asked if there would be a leak inquiry into the White Paper appearing in a Sunday newspaper, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) told the assembled press to speak to the Home Office.

Asked if it was the Government’s intention to see directly elected Police Commissioners within two years, the PMS said that the Government’s position on elected individuals was well known and advised people to wait for more detail in this afternoon’s statement.

Asked if the announcement would have any bearing on frontline officer numbers, the PMS replied that there were tough choices to be made. The Government had made its position clear regarding public services having to tighten their belts. We wanted to ensure that it was the back-office bureaucracy that was cut and not frontline services.
