Roger Evans calls on the Mayor to stop Londoners paying for national VIP Protection

Commenting, Roger Evans said.

“The current system is not fair on Londoners. The Met has said that it does not believe its share of the Government Grant meets the full costs of delivering VIP protection. That means ordinary Londoners are paying for police activity that is largely irrelevant to them. 

“It means we are paying for police to guard Royal palaces outside London. It means we are paying our police to guard ex-dictators and visiting foreign diplomats. It also means we pay for the expenses and salaries – running into millions - of officers guarding other high-profile individuals on their five star holidays. 

“The status quo is not right. Either we get a bigger grant from Government to cover these costs or we take these VIP Protection Units out of the Met so the Met can focus on what actually matters to Londoners.”
