Yesterday Andrew Lansley took business questions from MPs - I asked whether we could have a debate on police resourcing in London:
Gavin Barwell (Croydon Central, Conservative)
Yesterday, the Mayor of London published his draft police and crime plan, which offered Croydon an extra 117 police officers by 2015. May we have a debate on what others could learn from the Mayor of London about reducing running costs, concentrating resources on the front line and showing that, in a time of austerity, it is possible to protect front-line services?
Andrew Lansley (Leader of the House of Commons; South Cambridgeshire, Conservative)
That is an important example for others to follow. In Cambridgeshire, I might say, we are also seeing resources being focused on the front line and an increase in police numbers. It is important to achieve that. There are good examples, and I hope that we can find opportunities when they can be set out for others to follow.
