The Home Office is closely engaging with the Metropolitan Police and Hampshire Police with regard to President Trump’s state visit in June 2019.

The full costs of the policing operation are not yet finalised. Once an application for Special Grant is received it will be given careful consideration and a decision on the level of funding to be provided will be made in due course.
