To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the cost of the Metropolitan Police Complaints and Discipline department in the current year.[16128]

The Commissioner tells me that the Metropolitan Police's Complaints Investigation Bureau's (CIB) budget for the year 1997–98 is £6,040,000. However, during the year CIB has taken on additional police officers as part of its move to a more proactive role and it is now forecast to cost £7,128,000.The Commissioner tells me that the provisional budgetary estimates of the five Area Complaints Units are:

  • 1 Area: £996,000
  • 2 Area: £1,622,000
  • 3 Area: £1,280,000
  • 4 Area: £1,459,000
  • 5 Area: £1,413,000
  • Total: £6,770,000.
  • These figures are in addition to the figure for the CIB.
