§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What is their estimate of total central and local government expenditure on crime prevention in England and Wales in each of the next three financial years; what savings they expect this spending will produce; and whether they are designing mechanisms to enable the benefits of these savings to be appropriately shared between government departments, agencies and local authorities, both nationally and internationally. [HL1016]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Home Office (Lord Williams of Mostyn)
The information requested on expenditure is not available. Crime reduction work is funded from a range of central government programmes, often in partnership with local authorities and other agencies, and by local authorities directly from their own budgets. Expenditure on crime reduction is not recorded separately.
