HC Deb 07 July 1987 vol 119 c96W
Mr. McLoughlin

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether any new appointments are to be made to the Police Complaints Authority.

Mr. Hurd

Mr. Jeff Crawford, formerly senior community relations officer for the London borough of Haringey, and Mr. Karamjit Singh, an assistant county clerk with the Leicestershire county council, have accepted my invitations to serve as members of the authority. Mr. Crawford took up his post on 1 July and Mr. Singh will join the authority in mid-August. I hope to make a further appointment shortly.

These three appointments are being made to fill vacancies caused by the resignation of Mr. John Lyttle in January and Air Commodore Stephen King in May and by the creation of an additional post in response to the authority's workload.
