HC Deb 19 April 1993 vol 223 c10W
Mr. Diner

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what proposals he has to improve police training and to produce guidelines for police forces on child abduction.

Mr. Charles Wardle

It is for individual chief officers of police to determine what action should be taken to investigate offences under the Child Abduction Act 1984 and to decide what training is required. My right hon. and learned Friend is aware of the recent report of the parliamentary working party on child abduction and is ready to consider any proposals for amending the existing guidelines.
