Other members of the new police authority include seven independent persons and four magistrates. The independent faction includes one person appointed directly by the Home Secretary, who is Sir John Quinton, former chairman of the Metropolitan Police Committee mentioned above. The four magistrates on the new police authority have been appointed by the Greater London Magistrates’ Courts Association. In effect, the powers and duties of the new police authority are almost identical to those which function outside the Metropolitan Police area.

The Royal Commission on Criminal Procedure,1 as part of its remit, examined the then existing laws governing police powers of stop and search. These largely consisted of a patchwork of local Acts of Parliament, which lacked any standard procedures or uniform application nationally: The Philips Royal Commission identified two main defects in the existing law. First, police powers to stop and search varied from one part of the country to another. In London, for instance, the police could use the powers under s 66 of the Metropolitan Police Act 1839 to stop and search for stolen goods and similar local powers existed in Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Rochdale, but equivalent powers did not exist in most other parts of the country.

2 As a result, the Royal Commission recommended that uniform powers of stop and search should be given to the police throughout England and Wales, although the Government rejected the idea of a single or general power covering every eventuality. In consequence, a major reform of police powers of stop and search, as well as other powers, was enacted under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. 1 2 Philips Royal Commission.
