Speaking after the exchange in parliament, Mr Blomfield said: “I’m disappointed that the Home Secretary doesn’t recognise the impact of her cuts on local policing and that she ignored my request for her to give Police and Crime Commissioners the information they need to plan policing effectively. She is putting the safety of local communities at risk.”
