Answered By: 
The Mayor

The table below outlines the total cost for all Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) translation and interpretation services for each of the last five financial years. It includes Interpreters (spoken word), Translation (written word) and Telephone Interpreting (which includes 999 calls).

Translation and Interpretation Services

2016-17

£7.012m

2015-16

£7.408m

2014-15

£6.748m

2013-14

£6.701m

2012-13

£6.506m

It is not possible to break this figure down further without reviewing each individual claim - of which the MPS receives thousands each year.
