Further to Question No 2015/1568
Do you agree that the full cost of policing football matches should be fully recovered from the football clubs involved?'
Your answer and that of the MPS Commissioner being:
'MOPAC recovers the full cost of providing policing services to football matches for policing provided on land owned, leased or controlled by the relevant club. Under present law, MOPAC is not able to recover costs for any additional policing outside this 'footprint'. My Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime has made representations to Government about this'.
What representations did the Deputy Mayor make to Government, when, and what was the Government's response?
