Crime Levels

Volume 496: debated on Wednesday 15 July 2009

11. To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what assessment he has made of the likely effect of proposals contained in the Building Britain’s Future document on the level of criminal activity in Wales. (285618)

Building Britain’s Future, our strategic plan to build a more prosperous, stronger and fairer country contains enforceable entitlements that will help to reduce the level of criminal activity in Wales, such as:

a right to police on the beat, with community teams spending 80 per cent. of their time on foot patrol;

a right to monthly beat meetings, where local policing priorities are agreed; and

a right to minimum response times.
