asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the latest assessment made by the receiver general of the Metropolitan Police of costs proper to be met from the imperial and national grant; and what percentage this represents of total expenditure by the Metropolitan Police.

The last review carried out by the receiver in 1981 of the cost of the services which the imperial and national services grant is intended to recognise suggested that the expenditure involved was of the order of £24 million. This represented 4·2 per cent. of the actual net revenue expenditure of the Metropolitan Police in the financial year 1981–12.
