HC Deb 11 March 1998 vol 308 cc247-8W
10. Ms Corston

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if she will make a statement on plans for a new independent police complaints procedure in Northern Ireland. [32138]

Mr. Ingram

The Police (Northern Ireland) Bill, which is currently before this House, contains new provisions on police complaints. These will give effect to a new radical system in Northern Ireland by the establishment of an independent Police Ombudsman.
