Home Affairs Committee
Report published on 11 December 2015. Awaiting Government Response
In a report published on Friday 11 December 2015, the Commons Home Affairs Committee says during the pause in the Home Office's review of the police funding formula, an independent panel of accounting firms, financial experts and the College of Policing should be appointed to assist the Home Office in formulating revised proposals. The review process was paused after Home Office officials made serious errors in calculating the funding allocations for police force areas. These errors resulted in forces who had been advised they would be "winners" under the new funding allocation finding they are in fact facing cuts, and vice versa.
Evidence given by Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe, Metropolitan Police Commissioner, and Stephen Greenhalgh, Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime; Sir Thomas Winsor, Chief Inspector of Constabulary, and Mike Cunningham QPM, Inspector of Constabulary, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary; Mark Sedwill, Permanent Secretary, Home Office.
