Volume 449: debated on Wednesday 19 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much additional funding has been made available to police forces during the period of the World Cup to help maintain law and order in town centres and other areas with high numbers of licensed premises. (78327)

None. The Police Service in England and Wales has had a huge increase in funding in recent years. The use of these resources is a matter for each chief constable and police authority to determine in the light of local and competing priorities.
