HC Deb 22 October 1982 vol 29 c224W
Mr. Proctor

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the progress being made in setting up police-community consultative committees under the terms of his recent circular.

Mr. Mayhew:

Some areas already had consultative arrangements before the circular was issued in June, and in many others the police authorities and chief constables are setting up arrangements suited to local needs. The circular reflects the importance we attach to satisfactory, regular and effective consultative arrangements being set up with the minimum of delay. We shall wish to review the progress made in due course.
