HC Deb 15 February 1995 vol 254 c695W
Mr. Booth

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what will be the total cost to public funds of the Metropolitan police in 1995–96; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Howard

As police authority for the Metropolitan police district, I have approved estimates which provide for net revenue expenditure of £1,687.828 million in 1995–96.

The receiver for the Metropolitan police district is issuing, with my approval, a precept of £47.86 per property in band D of the council tax valuation band for Metropolitan police purposes.

I have discussed the estimates for the Metropolitan police expenditure in 1995–96 with representatives of the London local authority associations.
