Sentencing Council: Assault Guidelines Professional Consultation

The National Executive Committee through POA Circular 141 /10 sought the views of branches and the membership on this consultation. We requested returns by the 29th November 2010, in order that consideration could be given to a response from the POA to the Sentencing Council.

The Executive considered the responses, which totalled three (3) on the 15th December 2010. It was determined to forward the attached response to the Council on behalf of the POA as the closing date is 5th January 2011.

I would like to thank those who took the time to respond to POA Circular 141/10.


Yours sincerely



General Secretary
