HC Deb 28 February 1997 vol 291 c437W
Ms Abbott

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish the results of the Police Complaints Authority analysis into deaths in police custody which occurred during 1994; and if he will make a statement on his plans for a further two-year study. [17522]

Mr. Maclean

The data collected by the Police Complaints Authority into deaths in police custody during 1994 are incomplete but have been provided to the Home Office police research group which has recently commenced an in-depth study of deaths in police custody. This work will analyse available records of all such deaths from 1990 to the most recent. It is anticipated that the results from this research will be published late in 1997.
