Question

Thank you for your answer to my questions 2015/0055 and 2015/0497. In your response to my original question 2015/0055 you state "Providing accurate costs for a large number of policing operations is a complex activity requiring significant work by accountants. At this time, cost analysis is unavailable." Will you release the cost analysis once it has been undertaken?
