Commenting on the news that the UK Statistics Authority has concluded that the government misled the public over police funding, West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner David Jamieson, said,

“This is what I have been saying for a long time. Forces like West Midlands Police are still facing real terms cuts.

“This is a huge embarrassment for the government and for local MPs like Andrew Mitchell, Julian Knight and Eddie Hughes.

“West Midlands Police has been hit harder than anywhere else in the county. I hope the government apologises for its misleading statements and uses this as a moment to change course and start funding police forces properly.”
