Question

Further to your answer to Question No: 3064 / 2013

"Do you think that, at a time when you are cutting the police budget by 20%, it was right to spend £660 on DAC Maxine De Brunner's Napoleon style ceremonial hat?"

Your written response being:

"The MPS is very proud of its long-standing history of riding in Royal ceremonial events and the police contribution has long been appreciated by the public and other participants such as the military. At all times the MPS has a duty to deliver value for money to the taxpayer",

do you really believe that this expenditure of £660 on a hat meets the duty you indentify of "delivering value for money to the taxpayer" ?
