To ask the Secretary of State for Health what requests he has received from ambulance trusts for additional funding for the purchase of stab proof vests. (155977)

Ambulance staff across the country can have stab vests if it is decided they are necessary by their local NHS ambulance trust, with some ambulance services already having introduced them.
