HC Deb 13 November 2001 vol 374 c646W
Dr. Cable

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much additional funding has been made available to the Metropolitan Police Authority to finance the additional security duties of the Metropolitan police in the capita] following events of 11 September. [12413]

Mr. Denham

[holding answer 5 November 2001]: I greatly appreciate the immediate response made by the Metropolitan Police Authority and Service after the terrorist attack in the United States of America on 11 September.

I recognise that establishing and maintaining measures to counter increased risks to security has given rise to additional costs. I am considering with the Metropolitan police the financial implications.
