Dear Home Office,
I understand that the government has committed to provide £13.4 million for security measures in the Jewish community.
The Home Secretary said the money would go towards security guards and further protection steps at independent and state Jewish schools, nurseries, synagogues and community sites.
The charity will be responsible for managing the money.
The figure is an increase of around £2m on the amount unveiled by David Cameron — which itself represented £3m of additional funding.
Please can you confirm if this funding from public monies has been granted by the government to this organisation.
Please confirm the amount awarded.
In relation to the charity "managing the money" what checks and balances are being undertaken by the Home Office to ensure the monies are being utilised appropriately.
Why are monies from the public purse being given to this organisation for security guards and further protection steps at independent and state Jewish schools, nurseries, synagogues and community sites, when the local police force are fully equipped to carry out those duties.
Mrs G Millward
