HC Deb 17 May 1999 vol 331 c255W
Mr. Mitchell

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence who is responsible for reviewing the legality of the actions of the Ministry of Defence Police. [83249]

Mr. Doug Henderson

The Ministry of Defence Police derive their constabulary powers from the Ministry of Defence Police Act 1987. The MOD Police are therefore answerable to the law through the courts. In common with other UK police forces, MOD Police are subject to comprehensive disciplinary procedures; these are overseen by the independent Police Complaints Authority where complaints by members of the public are involved.
