HC Deb 10 February 1986 vol 91 c317W
Mr. Hargreaves

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many times the right of appeal against the internal disciplinary system in the police forces has been exercised (i) for members of the regular constabulary and (ii) for members of the special constabulary for each of the past three years.

Mr. Giles Shaw

Appeals were received from members of police forces dealt with for offences against discipline as follows:

Year Number
1983 *76
1984 †76
1985 *71

* Including eight withdrawn before determination.

† Including nine withdrawn before determination.

There is no formal discipline code for special constables and therefore no procedures for appeals to the Secretary of State.
