184895 - Police: Northern Ireland (Answered)

Mr Gregory Campbell
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what recent representations has she made to the Chancellor on the allocation of additional resources for policing in Northern Ireland in preparation for the UK leavings the EU.

Mr Shailesh Vara

I understand the PSNI has submitted its case for additional resources and that bid is currently being considered. The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland is in regular contact with both the Chancellor and the Chief Constable about the specific and unique concerns in Northern Ireland and is focussed on protecting the best interests of Northern Ireland in Brexit negotiations.
