Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 25 January 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what information it has on how the performance of the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner compares to similar bodies in the rest of the UK.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 8 February 2018

The Independent Office for Police Conduct for England and Wales and the Office of Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland have different statutory responsibilities to the PIRC and the Scottish Government is not aware of any performance information produced on a directly comparable basis across these bodies.
