I meet regularly with the Minister of Justice to discuss policing the security threat. I am clear that we have secured a fair settlement for Northern Ireland as part of the spending review, which will allow the PSNI to carry out its duties. This Government will ensure that the PSNI are equipped to deal with the threat.
