Home Affairs Committee Press Notice

Session 2003-04, dated 10 November 2004


Request for further evidence

The Home Affairs Committee has been conducting an inquiry into Police Reform. Following publication of the Government's white paper (Building Communities, Beating Crime-A Better Police Service for the 21st Century (Cm 6360)) the Committee is seeking further written evidence commenting on the white paper.

Submissions of no more than 2,000 words are invited from interested parties. As the Committee wishes to finalise its report before the close of the Government's consultation period, there is a tight deadline for submissions, of Monday 29 November.  Submissions should give the name and postal address of the person sending the memorandum and should state whether it has been prepared specifically for the Committee.  If the memorandum is from an organisation rather than an individual, it should briefly explain the nature and membership of the organisation.  The Committee may publish some of the submissions it receives.

Submissions should be sent to the Clerk of the Committee at the address below.  If possible, please supply an electronic version in MS Word or Rich Text format, either by e-mail to homeaffcom@parliament.uk or on a disk.  Further guidance on the submission of evidence can be found at http://www.parliament.uk/commons/selcom/witguide.htm .
