Volume 711: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government who is responsible for safety along the Sefton coast in north-west England. [HL3832]

The Department for Communities and Local Government is responsible, in partnership with other key departments, for driving the neighbourhood renewal agenda, improving cross-government working to secure cleaner, safer, greener neighbourhoods. Local authorities are working with the police, other partners and stakeholders to reduce crime and disorder in their areas, and the Strategic Rail Authority, for example, is also playing an important role in improving local station facilities for passengers such as better lighting and security CCTV at stations.
