Opposition Day — Crime and Policing — Police Funding — 8 Sep 2010 at 18:45
Owen Smith MP, Pontypridd voted not to reduce police funding as part of attempts to reduce the national deficit.
The majority of MPs voted to support the Government's proposed policing reforms which include reducing 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."
