HC Deb 15 March 2002 vol 381 c1264W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many Acts of Parliament have affected the police service since 1990; and if he will list them. [31982]

Mr. Denham

A list of all those statutes which make an explicit reference either to the police or to police authorities has, due to its length, been placed in the Library. Additional statutes relating to the criminal justice system have also been included. Other statutes may also affect the police service as they do a wide variety of other bodies and organisations, although their provisions do not deal specifically with policing or criminal justice issues. However, an investigation of all Acts of Parliament since 1990 to assess their possible effect on the police in this way is not possible without disproportionate cost.
