To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland

(1) whether the Belfast International Airport Constabulary will be brought within the remit of the new Chief Inspector of Criminal Justice;

(2) what progress has been made since 19 April to produce a comprehensive list of organisations to come within the remit of the Chief Inspector of Criminal Justice.

During the passage of the Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill through the House of Commons, I undertook to review the list of organisations within the remit of the Chief Inspector of Criminal Justice. I have written to initiate consultations with 19 organisations and I am awaiting final responses from a number of these. It is important that there is proper consultation with these organisations before final decisions are taken. As part of the consultation process, and to assist in identifying functions within these organisations which it might be appropriate to bring within the inspectorate's remit, a number of useful exploratory meetings have taken place. The Belfast International Airport Authority is one of the bodies with whom consultations are progressing.
