HC Deb 01 July 1996 vol 280 c310W
Mr. Cann

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what study has been undertaken since March of the appropriate adult system in criminal justice; and what plans he has to extend its role. [34611]

Mr. Maclean

An appropriate adults review group was set up in 1994 in response to a recommendation of the royal commission on criminal justice. The group reported last year. The Home Office is consulting the Association of Chief Police Officers before issuing guidelines to the police service in response to the report. The review group did not recommend an extension of the role of appropriate adults.
