Home Affairs Committee to take evidence from Met Commissioner Cressida Dick

10 May 2021

The Home Affairs Committee takes evidence from Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Dame Cressida Dick, on Tuesday 11 May in a wide-ranging session examining the policing of vigils and handling of police complaints.

The Metropolitan Police has come under criticism for its handling of  a vigil at Clapham Common following the death of Sarah Everard. Subsequent to the cancellation of a planned vigil, arrests were made as the police sought to disperse crowds who had gathered on the evening of 13 March. The session will examine the Metropolitan police response to the proposal for a planned vigil, its policing of subsequent events and the lessons learned.

The Committee will also question the Commissioner on issues relating to police conduct and complaints, in particular concerns raised by the handling of Operation Midland and the implementation of recommendations raised subsequently for lessons learned.

Witnesses

Tuesday 11 May

At 4.10pm

  • Dame Cressida Dick CBE QPM, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service
  • AC Louisa Rolfe, Metropolitan Police Service
