Mr. Stratton Mills

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland when he intends to take steps to review the Northern Ireland Police Authority; and if he will make a statement.

My right hon. Friend intends to lay before Parliament early in the New Year a draft Order in Council under Section 38 of the Northern Ireland Constitution Act 1973 to reconstitute the Police Authority so as to introduce into it an element drawn from elected representatives.
