Executive finally reading what the Minister of Justice actually says about recruiting the next CC?

Again, I’m grateful for this snippet from Mark Devenport. After a lot of bellicosity from all parties on the policing board perhaps it is slowly sinking in with members (rarely heard from when the PSNI are under fire) that it is indeed the Minister of Justice’s responsibility to legislate the framework for the next Chief Constable.

Theirs is to take responsibility of doing the ‘booking’.
