Cooper calls for police probe now

Cooper calls for police probe now

Pressure on the Metropolitan Police is building as MPs expressed concerns over the "revolving door" between policemen investigating the scandal and News International. The New York Times reports that Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson dined with News International executives 18 times during the investigation.

Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper has called on Theresa May to order an immediate "fast review" into police corruption and regulation rather than waiting for the judicial inquiry into phone hacking to report. Writing for PoliticsHome, Ms Cooper also calls for reform of the Independent Police Complaints Authority, saying it has failed to act over police malpractice, just as the Press Complaints Commission failed over newspaper regulation. Ms Cooper writes that the IPCA was "constrained by their limited powers, precedent and a huge caseload of more limited complaints".

Ms Cooper's call for urgent action comes ahead of Tuesday's grilling of Met Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson by the Home Affairs Committee and follows revelations that he authorised the hiring of ex News of the World Deputy Editor Neil Wallis, who was arrested last week. Sir Paul, along with Deputy Assistant Commissioner John Yates, is facing calls to quit from some Metropolitan Police Authority members
