To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what discussions he has had with the National Assembly for Wales Secretaries about the use of Private Finance Initiative by North Wales Police in respect of (a) refurbishment and replacement of police stations and (b) generally.

My right hon. Friend and I regularly meet with Assembly Secretaries to discuss matters affecting Wales.

The allocation of Private Finance Initiative credit approvals rests with the Home Office. Police projects in Wales also need approval from the National Assembly who fund annual service charges through their revenue grant. Decisions on which projects to support are entirely for the Assembly.
