UIN 76830, tabled on 17 November 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, when the public consultation on the revised national police funding formula will open.

Answered on

The government recognises that the current police funding formula is out of date and no longer accurately reflects demand on policing.

A review of the funding formula is now underway, and we are working closely with the policing sector and relevant experts to develop proposals for new funding arrangements. A full public consultation will take place before any new funding arrangements are put in place.

We have previously confirmed our intention to complete this work before the next General Election.
