Dear Hampshire Constabulary,

I would like the Chief Constable to explain the operational policing decision to transfer the District Police Commander for Stockbridge to Eastleigh following that officer's confirmation Caroline Nokes MP drove Adrian Yalland to a property in Stockbridge on the 20th February 2014.

Additionally and related, why did the police conceal Caroline Nokes' identity from the public?

Yours faithfully,
