§ Mr. Farr
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will detail the amount of police time spent inquiring into applications for street collection permits, the cost of these inquiries and related administration, and the proportion of the total cost recovered in fees from the organisers of street collections.
§ Mr. Merlyn Rees:
No fees are payable for street collection permits. Details of police time spent on inquiring into applications for such permits and the cost of this are not readily available.
