POLICE GRANT REPORT ENGLAND AND WALES 2015/16

My hon Friend the Minister of State for Policing, Criminal Justice and Victims (Mike Penning) has today made the following Written Ministerial Statement:

My rt hon Friend, the Home Secretary, has today laid before the House, the Police Grant Report (England and Wales) 2015/16 (HC 930). The Report sets out, my rt hon Friend, the Home Secretary’s determination for 2015/16 of the aggregate amount of grant that she proposes to pay under section 46(2) of the Police Act 1996, and the amount to be paid to the Greater London Authority for the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime. Copies of the report are available from the Vote Office.

At the time the provisional Police Grant Report was published on 17 December 2014, I said that I was also considering whether a limited amount of Police Capital Grant would be reallocated to support the Communications Capabilities Development (CCD) programme and Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programmes (ESMCP). After careful consideration I have decided that £20m will be reallocated to support the CCD programme. This will reduce overall infrastructure costs, maintain capabilities to comply with current legislation, and develop future communications capability. More time is needed to fully define the capital requirements for ESMCP in the future and so I have decided that it is not appropriate to reallocate funding for this Programme in 2015/16.

This Statement also includes details of other funding streams that the Home Office, the Department of Communities and Local Government and the Welsh Government intend to provide to the Police in 2015/16.
