The Government is hoping police will make a decision in the next "two to three months" on whether to adopt Tasers.

New Zealand First MP Ron Mark today called for police and the Government to move more swiftly to implement the stun guns, which he said gave police a level of force between a baton and a gun.

But Cabinet Minister Rick Barker, speaking on behalf of Police Minister Annette King, today said the decision would be made by Police Commissioner Howard Broad in his own time.

"The commissioner's decision will be released in due course, hopefully in the next two to three months."

Mr Broad is currently considering a report on the Taser trial, which finished about eight months ago.
