Lynne Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what discretion the Police Complaints Authority has to publish information to inform the public of the outcome of its investigations. [35975]

Mr. Denham

Section 80 of the Police Act 1996 allows the Police Complaints Authority to publish summary or other general statements which do not identify the person from whom the information is received or any person to whom it relates.

In accordance with section 79 of the 1996 Act, the Authority also publishes an annual report on the discharge of its functions, which includes statistical data on outcomes.
