Baroness Gibson of Market Rasen

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they will publish the recommendations from the report by Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Constabulary on Specialist operations. [HL2731]

Lord Bassam of Brighton

My honourable friend the Minister of State at the Home Office, Mr Clarke, has today placed in the Library a note of the recommendations from the report, together with responses by the Commissioners and comments by my right honourable friend the Home Secretary in his capacity as police authority for the Metropolitan Police Service. The Metropolitan Police have accepted all 12 recommendations in the report. From 3 July, it will be the responsibility of the new Metropolitan Police Authority to monitor progress on implementation of the recommendations.
