1. During the PCC Campaign, I (and many others) clearly recall you stating that you would appoint a Youth Police & Crime Commissioner and fund his or her salary directly from your own £85,000 pa. Can you confirm this is still the case. If not, why has your position changed. How much are you contributing?
2. What is the total annual cost, including your Youth Commissioner's salary, expenses, clerical and administrative support, training, travel costs, employer's pension and NI contributions, for employing a Kent Youth Police & Crime Commissioner?
3. How was the recruitment of the Youth Police & Crime Commissioner handled. Where was it advertised? Did the advertisement process meet the standards expected for public sector appointments? If not, why not?
4. Did you or your department write and distribute a job specification, If so, was it published. Can you publish it so Kent residents can see what is expected of our new Youth Police & Crime Commissioner?
5. How many people applied for the job? What criteria was used to shortlist them ?
6. Did you or your department carry out due diligence on Paris Brown?
7. If due diligence was not carried out, why not?
8. If due diligence was carried out, were Paris Brown's very recent social media comments made known to you, or any member of your team?
9. What role did either of your paid assistants, Peter Carrol and Howard Cox, have in the recruitment process?
10. Why do you think young people should have a designated commissioner and not the BME community or other groups who are considered marginalised by the policing process?
