Police Grant Report (England and Wales) for 2019-20 — Level of Central Government Funding for Policing — 5 Feb 2019 at 16:31

The majority of MPs voted to set central government funding of policing for 2019-20 at a level 2.1% higher than was set for 2018-19.

The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

The total central government grant for policing approved was £7,665,216,197. (The figure was £7,507,716,194 for 2018-19[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.
