Crime Prevention

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 19 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on progress since his meeting with the hon. Member for Nottingham North and George Hosking of Wave Research on 6 December 2006 regarding crime prevention and early intervention. (139874)

The Home Office is supportive of the early intervention work my hon. Friend and others are taking forward in Nottingham. However, regretfully we are unable to provide direct funding for his proposals at this time.

The Government are already doing a great deal to support similar activity through the Respect and the Social Exclusion Action Plans, including strands led by the DfES and the YJB. Nottingham has benefited significantly from this, and it is likely that there will also be further opportunities to bid for other funding to support this work in Nottingham in due course.
