Police Grant Report (England and Wales) for 2018-19 — Level of Central Government Funding for Policing — 7 Feb 2018 at 16:16
The majority of MPs voted to set central government funding of policing for 2018-19 at a level 1.7% lower than was set for 2017-18.
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 2018-19 (HC 745), which was laid before this House on 31 January, be approved.
The report set the total 2018-19 central government grant for policing at £7,507,716,194 (The figure was £7,509,016,194 for 2017-18)
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.
