§ Mr. Tony Banks
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the research into the effectiveness of neighbourhood watch undertaken by the Police Foundation will be released as a public document; if he proposes to summarise the findings of the research; and if the contents will be placed in the Library.
§ Mr. Douglas Hogg
The Police Foundation is an independent body. I understand that this research contract is due for completion in May 1988 and that the Police Foundation intends to lodge in the Library a copy of any final publication arising from this work.
