Merseyside Police Budget

EDM number 79 in 1994-95, proposed by David Alton on 22/11/1994.

That this House deplores the proposed reduction in the Merseyside Police budget following changes in Home Office funding criteria; applauds recent reductions in crime in the Merseyside area; notes the comments of the Chief Constable, Mr James Sharples, that 500 police officers may have to be cut from the force; believes this will dangerously weaken the ability of the Merseyside Police Force to combat crime; and believes the only beneficiaries will be the criminals, and Her Majesty's Treasury.

This motion has been signed by a total of 3 MPs.
