Urgent Question: Policing Budgets

An Urgent Question was granted on police funding and I wanted to see if we could get a straight answer from the minister on cuts.

We were told austerity has ended, but the Red Book – which details the Budget’s spending – stated that the Home Office will be cut by £100,000,000 next year. If the UK Government can’t say where these cuts are going to fall we must all be worried that they will hit our neighbourhood police officers the hardest.

If the Government do not properly fund our law enforcement agencies, like security services and the police, properly we will see crime continue to rise.
