Response to the Home Affairs Select Committee Report into PCCs

The Home Affairs Select Committee published its report 'Police and Crime Commissioners: Register of Interests' today (23/05).

The response from the Office of the PCC is below:

"The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) received a request for information from the Home Affairs Select Committee earlier this year.  As the Committee requested information that was over and above that which commissioners are statutorily required to disclose without explanation or justification as to why the information was needed or how it would be used, the PCC made several attempts  to speak to a member of the Committee to discuss the request but, unfortunately, did not receive a response. 

In the event, the information published in the Home Affairs Committee report is readily available on our website for the public, including the Committee, to access to ensure transparency.

We are pleased that the Home Affairs Select Committee has recognised that we are one of the areas where the OPCC budget 2013/14 is less than the Police Authority budget 2012/13."

Please visit the Transparency section of the website for information on staff, salaries, spending and decisions.
