HC Deb 13 July 1999 vol 335 c119W
Dr. Kumar

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish the name and rank of each Cleveland police officer who has been served with a regulation 7 notice in the Operation Lancet investigation. [91014]

Mr. Boateng

Notices are issued under Regulation 7 of the Police (Discipline) Regulations 1985 to inform officers who are under investigation of the allegations or complaints which have been made against them and to give them the opportunity to make a statement. As these notices are issued on the basis of allegations, it would not be appropriate to provide the name and rank of officers who have received such a notice.
