To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what are the costs to date to the Metropolitan police force arising from the ambulance dispute.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

The costs incurred by the Metropolitan police in providing assistance are recoverable. I understand from the Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis that claims for £1.5 million for the period up to 19 November have been presented and paid. Claims for a further £3.4 million for the period up to the end of December have been submitted.
