Yes, thank you. A number of things have been put in place since my arrival nine weeks ago in terms of work around new interim media guidelines, and they're currently being consulted on within the Metropolitan Police Service and they're due to come to management board for sign-off in April. Those are interim guidelines. They pick up the recommendations from Elizabeth Filkin's report, they also pick up the wider work we've been doing with the Association of Chief Police Officers around trying to ensure that there is one set of media guidelines for policing insofar as it is possible to do.
Done some work around the gifts and hospitality, both looking backwards and looking forwards in terms of the work around that new policy and the systems that are in place around it. We've opened up the world of social media and the work around that, so we have a social media policy, and talking about how individual boroughs and individual teams are putting information out into the public domain about policing operations across London and, some of the challenges of policing across London. And we're also going through a restructure of the DPA from a scenario of a part of the organisation that's predominantly focused on press, press activities, into a much wider media and communications that recognises the changes that are taking place, both in the local media and the national media in terms of what we do. So those are in place at the moment.
We very much see this as interim guidelines. We're clearly mindful of anything that should come from the Inquiry or from elsewhere in terms of the work to do that, but it's actually an interim position that allows us to move forward in terms of both the relationships at a management board level and throughout the Metropolitan Police with the media.
In relation to issues about reporting and recording, we are recommending that a note is made of it, and it's a note about the fact that the meeting took place, not, as sometimes has been believed, some sort of verbatim transcript, and we're suggesting additionally -- we're just looking at the feasibility of being able to do this -- for management board members, so that's the key members of the Metropolitan Police, that we make that available on the Internet, so there is a transparency and a visibility of the contact we're having with the media.
So that's what we've done at this stage.
