To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to page 76 of Budget 2018, what proportion of the additional £160 million funding for counter-terror policing in 2019-20 is an increase on previously planned year on year spending; and if he will make a statement.
6 November 2018
The Chancellor of the Exchequer announced an additional £160m funding for counter-terrorism policing in 2019-20 in the Budget statement on 29th October 2018 (Hansard Vol. 648, Column 657). This takes counter-terrorism police funding for next year to over £800m. The entirety of this additional funding is new money not previously announced or agreed.
The effect of this additional investment will be that counter-terrorism police budgets increase by £59m, from £757m this year to £816m next.
CT police funding since 2015-16 is set out in the table below.
