Committee Chair Rt Hon Keith Vaz MP said:

"The Committee is looking at how the IPCC can become a more effective organisation.
In this session we will be asking whether race and mental illness play a role in the way police treat victims and suspects and in how complaints are dealt with by the Commission.
Following the death of her brother Sean in custody, we will be very interested to hear Marcia Rigg’s firsthand experience of dealing with IPCC.”
