The Earl of Haddington
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they will place in the Library of the House copies of the annual accounts for each of the last five years of the Association of Chief Police Officers (Scotland); and why they have not acceded to previous Written Question requests to provide this information. [HL2397]
§ Lord Sewel
The accounts of the Association of Chief Police Officers in Scotland are contained in the association's annual report. I have arranged for copies of the annual reports for 1993–94 to 1997–98 to be placed in the Library of the House. A copy of the accounts for 1996–97 were placed in the Library in April and I wrote to the noble Lord on 6 June enclosing a copy of the accounts for 1997–98. There is no record of any previous request to provide a copy of the association's accounts for the years before 1996–97.
