Rail police spent £9,630 on sweets
The national police force for the railways spent more than £9,000 on sweets over three years, the Government said.
The British Transport Police spent a total of £9,630 plus VAT on bags of promotional sweets between 2006/07 and 2008/09.
Junior transport minister Chris Mole said the sweets were used by the BTP at "community engagement and rail safety events". The figures were released in a parliamentary written answer to Tory Nick Hurd (Ruislip Northwood).
