HOME Secretary Sajid Javid admitted yesterday that the Conservatives are still not pledging any extra money for the police.
Mr Javid spoke on the Marr show before today's announcement of the government's new counter-terrorism strategy.
The statement was made despite his previous claim that cuts in policing services have caused an increase in crime.
His predecessor Amber Rudd also denied Tory cuts to policing were a cause for the rise.
Labour accused Sajid Javid of "shameless lies” over repeating the claim that the government was providing an extra £450 million for police spending for next year, which the UK Statistics Authority has disputed.
Shadow Home Secretary, Diane Abbott, said: "You can't protect the public on the cheap."
"The Tories should reverse their cuts to our police forces, which has seen over 20,000 officers removed from our streets since they came to power," she added.
