To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how much financial assistance was given by his Department to Crimestoppers for the financial years(a) 2000–01 and (b) 2001–02; how much he proposes to grant for the 2002–03 financial year. 
§ Mr. Denham
In 2000–01 the Home Office made a grant of £90,000 to Crimestoppers for their administration costs and provided £40,000 to fund an evaluation of the effectiveness of their work. We are currently considering the question of Home Office assistance to Crimestoppers now and in the future.
