In 2015, the Government committed to spending more than £2 billion per year on counter-terrorism and investing 30% more over the Spending Review period, including £1.4 billion investment in new capabilities for the security and intelligence agencies.

In light of the changing threat picture set out in our strengthened and updated CONTEST strategy, we have also allocated an additional £50m funding to Counter-Terrorism Policing this year.
