HC Deb 17 March 1988 vol 129 cc665-6W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent representations he has received regarding the funding of additional police costs in respect of national annual party political conferences.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

We have received recent representations from seven hon. Members, one local council, one police authority, one constituency Labour party and one chamber of commerce about the funding of police costs of national annual party political conferences in a number of areas.

We have considered all these representations carefully but have concluded that we would not be justified in departing from normal police funding arrangements in these cases.

Forward to
