Non-discriminatory alternatives

The Police has long had an under-representation of women as well as from the Roman Catholic community. Females now constitute 22% of the PSNI and this is expected to rise to 26% by 2010. This is up from its Patten levels of 12.6% (a third of which was in the part-time reserve) and the growth is comparable with the improvement in RC representation. If the broadly same results can be acheived through other actions, why the need for the 50:50 rule? Comments switched off because of spam attack.

We are reader supported. Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported.
