To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what estimate she has made of the potential (a) amount in compensation payments by the Metropolitan Police to the victims of Special Branch officers who communicated with organisations and individuals that blacklisted construction workers, (b) number of recipients of such compensation and (c) amount of each individual payment; and what information her Department holds on the Metropolitan Police accounts from which similar compensation payments have been made.

The Home Office does not collect this information. Financial and budgetary management, including any compensation payments made, are a matter for individual police forces and Police and Crime Commissioners. In the case of the Metropolitan Police Service, this is the responsibility of the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime.
