HC Deb 21 November 1983 vol 49 c9W
Sir Frederic Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will now give the gross cost involved in the deployment of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament march and other marches about nuclear defence policy held in London on 22 October: what was the additional cost made up by overtime; and what contribution the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament made towards the cost in that capacity.

Mr. Hurd

I understand from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that the gross cost of deploying officers to police the events is estimated at £531,486, including an additional overtime cost calculated at £51,066. The organisers of the march made no contribution towards the costs in that capacity.
