What were the total payments made to the Receiver of the Metropolitan Police District and to other police authorities in respect of prisoners held overnight in police custody during the financial year 1982–83.

Payments to the Metropolitan Police for keeping prisoners in police custody during the year ending 31st March 1983 totalled approximately £2.7 million. I regret that details of payments to other police forces for this purpose are not readily available.
