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 is the best estimate of the cost to the Met of policing outside the 'footprint' of land owned, leased or controlled by the football clubs?
