The majority of MPs voted to set central government funding of policing for 2015-16 at a level 4.7% lower than was set for 2014-15.

The motion approved by the majority of MPs was:

The report set the total 2015-16 central government grant for policing at £7,630,719,732 (The figure was £8,007,358,984 for 2014-15[1])

The central government grants are one of the ways policing in England and Wales is funded; council tax is another significant source of funding. Some of the government grant is paid as a "council tax freeze grant" paid where policing bodies decided in the past not to increase their element of council tax above a level set by the government.
