The Home Office

Excerpt

It is well known that Government Departments work as a team. The compilation of this book was no exception to that practice, and I gladly take this opportunity to express my thanks to my senior colleagues who have helped me with material and advice on the matters on which they are experts. But I alone am responsible for the contents of the book and in particular for the views and opinions expressed. I have sought in the book to describe the principles, as I see them, which underlie the part played by the Home Office in the preservation of order and the maintenance of civil liberty, and I have also sought to give some account of the nicely balanced relationships which exist between the Home Office and the local authorities in administering the various services with which they are both concerned. It is, however, not possible, and indeed it would not be appropriate, to attempt to describe in detail within the compass of a book concerned mainly with the Home Office these services, or the responsibilities of the local authorities themselves.

The powers of the Home Secretary described in this book do not, in the main, extend to Scotland. Exceptions to this general statement are described in the appropriate parts of the book.
