HC Deb 05 December 1995 vol 268 c206W
Mr. Morley

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make it his policy to permit chief constables at their discretion to recover the costs of police attendance at fox and stag hunts. [3208]

Mr. Maclean

Public order policing at these events falls within the normal law enforcement duties of the police.

Funding for costs incurred by the police in discharging their duty to enforce the law is provided jointly by central and local government.
