Paragraphs 30 to 32: Inspection and post-inspection direction

59.Paragraph 30 allows the Secretary of State to require Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary to inspect and report on the Agency’s efficiency and effectiveness. Paragraph 31 places a duty on the Secretary of State to make the report of an inspection public, subject to national security and other sensitivity considerations. Sub-paragraph (3) of paragraph 31 requires the Secretary of State to send a copy of the inspection report to the Agency and he can direct the Agency to take such measures as are necessary to remedy inefficiency or ineffectiveness.

60.Sub-paragraph (3) of paragraph 30 erroneously refers to a provision that was removed from the Bill during its passage through Parliament. It is not capable of having any operative effect, and will not be brought into force.
