Briefing on Independent Custody Visitors – ICVA
The ability to deprive someone of their liberty before an offence has been proven as a necessary tool for keeping the public safe and ensuring that the criminal justice process can take its course, but these powers must be carefully balanced with appropriate assurance and oversight.
It is fundamental to our system of policing by consent that the public have confidence that people detained in police custody are treated in a transparent, lawful and ethical way.
Advice on campaigning during lockdown
Letter from Minister Chloe Smith MP, which was recently sent to Members of the Parliamentary Parties Panel.
It provides advice to political parties to reflect the UK Government’s position – that current restrictions do not support door-to-door campaigning or leafleting by individual political party activists.
The Government believes voters can continue to get campaigning information remotely instead.
