Question

Given you have no plans to sell the water cannon purchased last year (MQ2015/3620) can you confirm that they will become part of the Metropolitan Police Service's historical collection? Do you agree with me that their public display could serve a useful educational purpose by prompting discussion about the principles of policing by consent?
