Conservative MP Bernard Jenkin, who chairs the Commons public administration select committee (PASC), has said the "devastating" police watchdog analysis of recording crime statistics have corroborated with his committee's own findings.
Like PASC, HMIC is 'seriously concerned' about 'weak or absent management and supervision of crime recording and serious sexual offences not being recorded.
The police have failed to prosecute offences when they should have done. This both under-records crime and over-states clear-up rates.
HMIC says the same. They also accept that it is 'difficult to conclude that none of these failures was the result of discreditable or unethical behaviour'.
