I have in my hand a copy of the Liberal Democrat 2010 manifesto published in, I think, April 2010. I presume the hon. Gentleman knew what his party was saying at the time. The manifesto says that the Liberal Democrats would pay

“for 3,000 more police on the beat, affordable because we are cutting other spending”.

What happened in those few weeks before the hon. Gentleman became a Minister?
