May I return to the question of resourcing that was raised by the Chair of the Home Affairs Committee, my right hon. Friend Keith Vaz? A number of agencies, including local government and the police, will be involved as a consequence of the inquest, and many other operations will need to be undertaken that will require substantial resourcing. Can we have an assurance that those costs will be met centrally, rather than in a way that could affect the operation of other services to people in the communities affected?
