Minister of State for the Home Office, Nick Hurd, made a statement in the House of Commons on policing and informed the House on the Government's provisional police funding settlement, detailing how much money each police force in England and Wales will receive in 2018-19.

Shadow Home Secretary, Diane Abbott, responded on behalf of the Opposition and stated that the Opposition doubted the Government’s proposals would meet the policing challenges of the 21st century.
