Mr. Waddington

The information requested is not available centrally.

which the inspectorate of constabulary became aware of allegations against the deputy chief constable of Greater Manchester; if he will give details of what action was taken by the inspectorate of constabulary at the time of this information; and if he will give details of what discussions took place between the inspectorate of constabulary and Greater Manchester police prior to the suspension of the deputy chief constable of Greater Manchester.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary was advised in October 1985 of the existence of information alleging that a relationship might exist between the deputy chief constable and certain persons whose activities were under investigation in Greater Manchester. No evidence was available to justify any action in respect of this information until May 1986. At that time the Inspectorate advised on the appointment of the chief constable of west Yorkshire to carry out the investigation instituted by the Greater Manchester police authority into the allegations. The decision to suspend the deputy chief constable from duty was taken by the police authority and approved by the Police Complaints Authority.
