Opposition Day — [4th Allotted Day] — Crime and Policing — 8 Sep 2010 at 18:45
The majority of MPs voted to support the Government's proposed policing reforms which include cutting police funding to help reduce the national deficit.
The text of the approved motion read:
"That this House
- notes the appalling fiscal deficit left by the last Government and reiterates the urgent need to restore the nation to economic health;
- recognises that the police will need to play their part in reducing that deficit; and
- welcomes the Government's proposed policing reforms, which will deliver a more responsive and efficient police service, less encumbered by bureaucracy, more accountable to the public and, most importantly, better equipped to fight crime."
-  Home Secretary Theresa May House of Commons 8 September 2010
