Debate on police community support officers

26 March 2010

David Hanson, Minister of State for Crime and Policing at the Home Office, opened a debate in Westminster Hall on the role and function of police community support officers.

Westminster Hall debates

Westminster Hall adjournment debates allow MPs to discuss issues of local or personal interest which rarely have time to be debated in the main Chamber of the House of Commons. MPs can discuss a variety of issues and receive a response from a government Minister.

On Thursdays, the sitting consists of a single debate, either on a topic chosen by the Government - as on this occasion - or on a report from a select committee and on the Government's response.
