Petition Halt the cuts to the Metropolitan Police budget
Having lost £600 million in real terms over the past 7 years, the Metropolitan Police face a further £400 million cut over the next 4 years.
70 per cent of all police spending in London comes from the Home Office, meaning that any change in that funding has a disproportionate effect.
