UIN 284352, tabled on 2 September 2019

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what effect funding 20,000 additional police officers will have on the Scottish Government's block grant.

Any increase in funding to the police forces of England and Wales would generate a ‘Barnett consequential’ uplift to the Block Grants to the Scottish Government. It would be a matter for the Scottish Government to determine how the additional resources would be allocated.
