Home Secretary "right" to cut funding to Police Federation, says TaxPayers' Alliance

May 21, 2014 12:00 PM

Responding to the Home Secretary's announcement that public funding of the Police Federation is to be stopped, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

"The Home Secretary is right to cut all funding to what has become, effectively, a trade union. Taxpayers will be pleased that their money will now be used to recruit rank-and-file officers, not Federation officials."
