This evidence session by the Commons Home Affairs select committee is an opportunity to question witnesses further about the issue of operational independence.
The Committee will also examine the key difference between the current role of Police Authorities and the role proposed for Police and Crime Commissioners, collaboration between forces on regional and national issues, and Police and Crime Panels.
Rt. Hon Keith Vaz MP, Chair of the Committee, said:
"The landscape of policing looks set to change considerably in the near future if plans to implement directly elected individuals go ahead. The Committee looks forward to questioning the witnesses on the impact this will have on policing in the 21st Century."
