Police Grant Report (England and Wales) 2011/12

The Police Grant Report sets out the Home Secretary’s determination for the financial year 2011/12 the amount of grant allocated to each police authority in England and Wales for police purposes.

The Police Act 1996 states that the Home Secretary shall determine the grants for police authorities and prepare a report to be laid before the House of Commons.

No payment of grant can be made unless the report has been approved by the House of Commons.
