§ Mr. Bernie Grant
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate he has made of the cost of Operation Eagle Eye. 
§ Mr. Maclean
[holding answer 22 July 1996]: I understand from the commissioner that during 1995–96, £4.8 million was spent on vehicles, technology and training in support of Operation Eagle Eye which is one of the agreed priorities for the Metropolitan police.
Actual personnel costs for 1995–96 are not available but the commissioner estimates that personnel costs for Operation Eagle Eye for 1996–97 will be £17.1 million.
