On Monday 9 November, Kevan joined parliamentary colleagues in raising serious concerns with the Home Office over errors in the Police Funding Formula.
An urgent question was asked in the House after it emerged there was a statical error in the data being used to determine future police force funding.
Kevan said, "I find it remarkable that it took 24 hours for him (the Minister) to find out about the problem, and that his officials did not tell him sooner. Does he not realise that the Home Office has now lost all credibility among the police and the police and crime commissioners—the police family—over this process? Is it not about time he took up the suggestion of the Chair of the Home Affairs Committee, my right hon. Friend the Member for Leicester East (Keith Vaz), and established independent oversight of the process?"
