§ Mr. Kidney
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ensure that road safety and the reduction of vehicle crime are included in crime and disorder audits. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 does not specify what categories of crime and disorder must be included in the audit local partnerships must produce. However, it does require that the partnership conduct a thorough review of the levels and patterns of crime, consulting widely in the local community. It is through this process that partnerships will identify the nature and extent of road safety and vehicle crime problems in their area, as well as other crime and disorder issues.
