asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many places are currently taken on the community programme for crime prevention projects.
I have been asked to reply. Information about numbers on this type of community programme project is not currently available. However, it is being collated as part of the initiative being undertaken with my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary to ensure that worthwhile and practical crime prevention projects are mounted, as the programme expands to 230,000 places. I shall write to my hon. Friend as soon as the information is available.
