'Kendrick Report' into policing of 1994 Hyde Park demonstration

The request was successful.

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

Please supply a copy of the Metropolitan Police document 'De-brief Report into the Disorder in Hyde Park and Park Lane on Sunday 9th October 1994' by Commander D Kendrick (1995). My preference would be for an electronic copy.

I note that over the years it has been cited in numerous academic texts, in reports such as those by HMIC, and in journals. Additionally, it was first published nearly twenty years ago. As such I believe that it could not be considered exempt from disclosure under any possible operational considerations.

Yours faithfully,

David Cinzano

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

For the sake of clarity, I have seen the publication date of this report given as both 1994 and 1995.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Metropolitan Police Service (MPS),

Many thanks for supplying the information per this request.

May I enquire where the response of 27 November went?

As can be seen on this page, there was nothing sent through WDTK; nor did I receive anything via email or in the post (not that I provided those details to MPS in the first place).

Yours faithfully,

David Cinzano
