Lib Dem MPs this afternoon (Tuesday 10 February) voted down Labour’s plan to save 1,100 police officers from being cut next year.

The choice presented to the House of Commons today was:
•    Tory plan – 1,100 officers cut in 2015/16 and no plans to help the police make savings, so that frontline policing is hit again.
•    Labour plan – saving 1,100 officers in 2015/16 by making savings on gun licencing, procurement and Police and Crime Commissioners.
