Maybe the Queen should pay for policing?

08 September, 2017

• I NOTE the points by Labour Assembly Member Andrew Dismore concerning paying for policing at Premier League football matches and in busy tourist areas at weekends.

The debate goes on about additional police funding and there has been a suggestion large football clubs pay for policing outside their grounds.

So now I wonder whether the Queen might be asked to pay for the policing of the traffic congestion caused by Trooping of the Colour and the state opening of parliament, in which she plays a role. She surely has some of the broadest shoulders to afford the expense.
