Funding for police training

This week in Parliament I called on the UK Government to ensure that Welsh police forces receive their full share of the apprenticeship levy for training.

Speaking in Home Office questions, I said: "Policing and uniformed police training are not devolved in Wales, so will the Minister ensure that Welsh police forces receive their full share of the apprenticeship levy for training? It is just not good enough to pass responsibility to the Welsh Government when the money involved does not even cover their Treasury spending cuts."

In response, Policing Minister Nick Hurd MP said he agreed on the 'importance of ensuring that our police officers have the right skills' but cited a 'difference of view' between the UK and Welsh Governments on funding. He said that a meeting between the Governments was 'imminent' and that he hoped progress could be made.
