Transparency and Consistency of Sentencing
Bill Presented — Water Industry (Financial Assistance) Bill
Stewart Jackson (Peterborough, Conservative)
Will the hon. Gentleman answer a direct question? If he is not in favour of a 20% cut in police numbers, and, assuming that he would ring-fence any savings or cuts within the criminal justice system, how would he make up the difference between the 12% cut in police numbers that he would make to Her Majesty’s inspectorate of constabulary, and the 20% cut that the Government are proposing? Where would that 8% come from in the criminal justice system?
