Police: Greater London

Volume 495: debated on Monday 29 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department in which boroughs in London the number of police officers will be reduced in the next 12 months as a result of the application of the Metropolitan Police resource allocation formula; and if he will make a statement. (281789)

The allocation of resources by the Metropolitan Police Service to the London borough operational command units is a matter for the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and the Metropolitan Police Authority (MPA).

I understand that the resource allocation formula used by the MPS and the MPA to allocate resources to boroughs is kept under review.
