§ Mr. Tony Banks
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what contact is maintained between the Metropolitan police and the Docklands forum.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
The Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis tells me that the commander of "H" district and the chairman of the Docklands forum have provisionally agreed to the setting up of a sub-committee of the forum to look at the changing policing needs of docklands. The sub-committee will include representatives of all police districts covering docklands and, subject to the approval of the full forum, is likely to start work shortly.
