Cuts Watch #208: Minor Royals

16 Aug 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Well, not the individuals, but their armed guards. According to yesterday’s News of the World, the government has decided on a £50 million cut from the £150 million p.a. cost of providing police guards for the royal family that would remove protection from less well-known members. (This may be a bit of wishful thinking, other papers have been slow to follow up this story and, back in April, this was a move being demanded by the NOTW’s sister paper The Sun.)
