Statement from West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson in response to the Autumn Statement:

“The Chancellor has indicated that departmental spending will not increase.

“At a time when crime is changing and not falling that will be a major disappointment to the people of the West Midlands.
 
“Last year, local police forces faced real terms funding cuts of 2.3%. For West Midlands Police that equated to a further £2.5 million cut on top of the £125 million already cut since 2010.
 
“This Autumn Statement does not offer any respite.”
