What recent assessment he has made of the adequacy of funding for the police in Bedfordshire.
I am surprised that the Minister has grouped these questions together, as my question is about Bedfordshire. I am sure he will point to the additional funding provided for Operation Boson in this financial year, but does not the fact that the Home Office had to make that award demonstrate the scale of the problem of funding an urban area as a rural force? I have worked on a cross-party basis...
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, what his long-term plans are for the adult social care precept after 2019-20.
