Hazel Blears (Minister of State (Policing, Security and Community Safety), Home Office; Salford, Labour)

I have today placed in the Library a copy of the Police Grant Report (England and Wales) 2006–07 (HC 845). The report sets out my determination for 2006–07 of the aggregate amount of grants that I propose to pay under section 46(2) of the Police Act 1996, and the amount to be paid to each police authority and to the Greater London Authority for the Metropolitan Police Authority.

I have also placed in the Library copies of the Police Grant Report (England and Wales) 2004–05 (Amending Report 2005–06) (HC 847) and the Police Grant Report (England and Wales) 2005–06 (Amending Report 2005–06). (HC 846) to take account of changes to Office for National Statistics population data and pensions changes.

General police grant allocations which include Home Office Police Grant and Revenue Support Grant for each police authority for 2006–07 are set out in Table 1. Amended allocations for 2004–05 and 2005–06 are set out in Tables 2 and 3.
