Portsmouth South MP Stephen Morgan has demanded extra cash is injecting into Hampshire Constabulary – which has had funding slashed by £80m since 2011.
His calls come after the PM pledged to meet Portsmouth traders who have been blighted by a surge in crime.
The Labour MP, who joined police on the beat, said: ‘It’s about time the government were honest about the impact their cuts to policing are having.
‘On the watch of a Tory police and crime commissioner, Hampshire Constabulary’s resources have already been cut to the bone and now the Government are asking them to make tens of millions more in savings.

‘This means fewer bobbies on the beat, valuable links to the public are lost, and, ultimately, makes our communities less safe – whether the PM wants to admit it or not.
‘People in Portsmouth have had enough. They can see for themselves what the government continues to deny – that cuts have consequences.’
