so far as is practicable.

The tutor's knowledge about human rights appeared to be weak.

The training appeared to be done in a vacuum.

The Commission found little evidence of training in international standards other than those in the ECHR or of benchmarking of progress through the training to that date.

(a) the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland;

(b) the Chief Constable; and

(c) the Secretary of State.

we have been persuaded by the Police Federation and individual officers who commented on the present uniform that it is somewhat outdated and we recommend that a new, more practical style of uniform be provided to police officers.

It is the Commission's view that goals and timetables and affirmative action measures which are currently lawful under the Fair Employment and Treatment (Northern Ireland) Order 1998 are unlikely to produce the necessary change in the composition of the police for a considerable period . . . the Commission believes that the creation of a police service which is representative of the community is essential both to the effectiveness of the police service and to the establishment of a peaceful Northern Ireland.

Lords amendment agreed to.

Lords amendment No. 60 agreed to.

Lords amendment: No. 61, in page 22, line 22, at end insert--

("(3A) No order may be made under subsection (2) as a result of subsection (3)(b) which has the effect, as respects an occasion specified in the order, of requiring more than three-quarters of the persons appointed on that occasion to be--

(a) the persons who are treated as Roman Catholic; or

(b) the persons who are not so treated.")

Motion made, and Question put, That this House agrees with the Lords in the said amendment.-- [Mr. Ingram.]

The House divided: Ayes 293, Noes 122.
