§ Mr. George Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what was the amount paid in 1979–80 in the form of rates for police services in the Metropolitan Police district, the City of London and in England and Wales outside London, respectively (a) per domestic hereditament and (b) per head of population.
§ Mr. King
The Department does not collect this information. However, general information about local authority budgeted expenditure on the police service, together with numbers of hereditaments and population, is to be obtained from "Financial, General and Rating Statistics" which is published annually by the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy—a copy is available in the Library of the House.
