Mr. Gale

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the report of the working group on the special constabulary has been completed; when it will be available; and if he will make a statement. [40083]

The working group has completed its work and I hope to make an announcement about the Government response to the working group's recommendations shortly. A copy of the report will be placed in the Library as soon as it is available.
