Bob used the Business Questions to draw attention to his admiration for the hard working men and women of the Metropolitan Police. Bob has been taking part in the Police Parliamentary Scheme and last month joined the Met on active patrol. Bob asked for a statement on the impact on the Metropolitan Police as a result of the large amounts of work done since the riots.
