To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Neville-Jones on 19 October (WA 162), why the head of the Metropolitan Police is referred to as the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service instead of the Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis as was previously used; and why and when that change in the title was made.

The commissioner's formal title remains Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis. Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service is simply an informal variant of this title.
