Peter Aldous calls for review of police funding formula to address Suffolk police under-funding

26th February 2018

Peter Aldous calls on the Government to set out a timetable for reviewing the police funding formula to address the problem of Suffolk being one of the lowest-funded forces with the highest number of case loads.

With Suffolk police being one of the lowest-funded forces with the highest number of case loads per officer in the country, will the Policing Minister set out a timetable for reviewing the police funding formula?

My hon. Friend is an assiduous campaigner on behalf of Suffolk police, and he knows that next year, as a result of the funding settlement, it will get an additional £3.6 million. I have made it clear that we will be looking at the fair funding formula in the context of the next comprehensive spending review, because we think that is the most appropriate framework to do so. Although we do not have an exact timetable, I expect that work to start soon.
