The Metropolitan Police Authority is in session and the Commissioner has, in answer to a question from me, told the Authority that there are currently 14,029 people on bail who are potentially affected by the extraordinary (my word not his) ruling by a High Court Judge to overturn 25 years of previous interpretations of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act.

Of the 14,029, 175 are on bail for murder, attempted murder or conspiracy to murder.

He has raised it with the Home Secretary. Action from her is awaited.
