Time 'not right' for RUC reform.

REPRESENTATIVES of rank and file RUC officers yesterday warned the government against pressing ahead with police reforms while peace remained uncertain.

The Police Federation for Northern Ireland also pledged to lobby Parliament "with the utmost vigour" when legislation which could change the force's badge and name comes before it.

The editorial of the Federation's monthly magazine, Policebeat, said that Northern Ireland faces a most uncertain future as "recent violent incidents" demonstrated.

"The government must note that it cannot let the pace of change in the police service run ahead of the consolidation of the political systems or of the uncertainty of the peace."
