To ask Her Majesty's Government whether chief police officers can apply for additional funding to cover the opportunity costs of officers being present at an anti-fracking protest, rather than doing regular community policing duties, or whether such additional funding only covers costs such as unusual overtime and mutual aid.

Special Grant funding only covers additional costs. In general this may include staff overtime, mutual aid and rest day working costs. Vehicle or equipment hire costs may also be claimed.

Detailed guidance on Special Grant funding is on the Government website at:
