West Midlands PCC's response to budget

Commenting on today's budget, the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, David Jamieson, said: "I am very disappointed to see police forces up and down the country, including here in the West Midlands, will not be given any additional funding by the government. Having lost £145 million and 2,000 officers since 2010 our police force has diminished considerably in size. This was an opportunity for the Chancellor to invest in all of our safety."
