Mike Wood: My right hon. Friend’s Department will have received a letter from West Midlands mayor Andy Street on our police funding, which I hope she will consider appropriately. Will she also ensure that local police forces, including mine in the West Midlands, have all the resources they need to do their important counter-terrorism work?
Amber Rudd (The Secretary of State for the Home Department)
Police budgets for 2018-19 will be set shortly, before Christmas. I reassure my hon. Friend that we will also always bear in mind police forces’ needs in dealing with counter-terrorism.
