Community Safety Fund

Volume 498: debated on Monday 2 November 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he expects the Community Safety Fund to be fully implemented; what the fund’s budget for (a) 2009-10, (b) 2010-11 and (c) 2011-12 is; and if he will make a statement. (296403)

The Community Safety Fund (CSF) was dependent on the introduction of elected crime and policing representatives on to police authorities. The CSF would have superseded the Basic Command Unit (BCU) Fund. The subsequent decision not to introduce crime and policing representatives meant the Community Safety Fund was not established. The BCU Fund remains in place.
