HC Deb 19 June 2002 vol 387 c325W
11. Kevin Brennan

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what consultations he has had with the Home Department about additional resources for the policing of events of national significance at the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff. [59917]

Mr. Paul Murphy

I have regular discussions with colleagues about a number of issues affecting Wales, including policing matters.

In recognition of additional policing costs arising in Cardiff while major football matches are being played at the Millennium Stadium, my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary has approved special payments of £300,000 to South Wales police in both 2001–02 and 2002–03.
