Oliver Letwin MP, West Dorset voted to set central government funding of policing for 2017-18 at a level 1.16% higher than was set for 2016-17.
The majority of MPs voted to set central government funding of policing in England and Wales for 2017-18 at a level 1.16% higher than was set for 2016-17.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs, and the majority representing English and Welsh constituencies was:
- That the Police Grant Report (England and Wales) for 2017–18 (HC 944), which was laid before this House on 1 February, be approved.
The report set the total 2015-16 central government grant for policing at £7,509,016,194 (The figure was £7,421,588,629 for 2016-17)
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.
