§ Mr. Parry
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the working of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Giles Shaw
The main provisions of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 came into effect on 1 January this year. The wide-ranging new procedures introduced by the Act are being monitored closely but it is too early to make a full assessment.
