Stories involving Nick Herbert

Police funding cut 5%

Central government funding of the police will be cut by 5% in 2012-13, Policing Minister Nick Herbert confirmed today.

In a Written Ministerial Statement today, Mr Herbert also prioritises counter-terrorism, making £564m available across the police authorities, and £600m available for security during the London Olympics.

Shadow Policing Minister David Hanson said: "This settlement is simply not good enough. Police forces are seeing their budgets cut by a further £700 million in real terms on top of last year’s cuts, and ultimately it is communities that are paying the price."


Minister 'trying to silence police'

Police minister Nick Herbert has been accused of trying to silence police over public spending cuts.  Mark Sweet, general secretary of the Lancashire Police Federation, described Mr Herbert's comment that "quieter" constables were make savings and ensuring frontline officers' jobs were safe, as "appalling". Mr Herbert said: "The thing that I am increasingly doing is noting the chief constables from forces who are delivering these savings, all requiring difficult decisions I accept, but delivering decisions in a way which actually is protecting the frontline service".

Labour have seized on Mr Herbert's comments, demanding their immediate withdrawal and an apology. Shadow Policing Minister Vernon Coaker said: "The arrogance of the Government's attacks on the police, coupled with their complacency over frontline losses, is a damning indictment of this Government and the Home Secretary.


The Government plans to close 157 magistrates' and county courts across England and Wales, police minister Nick Herbert announced yesterday.


Emergency laws to overturn bail ruling

Policing Minister Nick Herbert has confirmed that emergency laws will be brought forward to overturn a High Court ruling limiting police bail in England and Wales to a maximum of four days.


Minister faces police spy questions

Policing minister Nick Herbert will be questioned by MPs about the police's network of undercover spies. Mr Herbert will attend a Home Affairs select committee session on the activities of officers such as Mark Kennedy, who spent seven years living as an environmental activist.


Michael Salter, David Cameron's broadcast advisor, has been named the UK's eighth most influential gay person by the Independent on Sunday. At number 11, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats Simon Hughes was the highest placed MP to make the annual Pink List, whilst Nick Herbert, Angela Eagle and Lord Mandelson also feature.
