Police And Accountants

EDM number 1306 in 1993-94, proposed by Alan Simpson on 25/05/1994.

That this House notes with warnings given by the Chief Constable of Nottinghamshire about the dangers of a police force driven by accountants; notes his fear that the police might lose their service role to the public and become focused only on measurable activity and increasingly become a response and support service to private security companies; and, in recognising these dangers, urges the Home Secretary to abandon his obsession with price driven policing.

This motion has been signed by a total of 40 MPs.
