Departmental Policies

Emily Thornberry: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will set out, with statistical information relating as directly as possible to Islington South and Finsbury constituency, the effects on Islington South and Finsbury of his Department's policies and actions since 2 May 1997. [60733]

Mr. Charles Clarke: The Government have put into place policies in the areas of crime reduction, antisocial behaviour, policing and active communities that are yielding considerable benefits for the constituency.

Between March 1997 and March 2005 the number of police officers in the Metropolitan Police area increased by 4,396 from 26,677 to 31,073. The Government's introduction of community support officers (CSOs) in 2002 has put 2,053 CSOs on the streets in the Metropolitan Police Service area to tackle crime and antisocial behaviour. Metropolitan Police will receive £1,818 million in general grants for 2006–07, an increase of 3.1 per cent. (£54.7 million) over the comparable figure for 2005–06. General grants funding to Metropolitan Police has increased by 20.8 per cent. between 1997–98 and 2006–7 (Figures are not directly comparable, due to boundary changes, adjustments to pay centrally for NCS and NCIS, and the transfer of pensions and security funding from general grant to specific in 2006–07. All have reduced general grant for Metropolitan Police Authority compared with 1997). In addition to general grants, Metropolitan Police will also receive an estimated £394.5 million in specific grants funding for targeted initiatives and capital provision in 2006–07. The Metropolitan also gains £5.3 million from the amending reports for 2004–05 and 2005–06. The distribution of resources locally is a matter for the Police Authority and the Chief Officer.

The Crime Reduction programme (CRP) was a £340 million intervention programme running for three years from April 1999. Figures are not available for constituency or local level.

Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will set out with statistical evidence relating as closely as possible to West Lancashire constituency the effects in West Lancashire of changes to his Department's policies since 1997. [64237]

Lancashire Police will receive £187 million in general grants for 2006–07, an increase of 3.1 per cent. (£5.6 million) over the comparable figure for 2005–06. General grants funding to Lancashire police has increased by 27.3 per cent. between 1997–98 and 2006–07. (Figures are not directly comparable, as adjustments to pay for NCS and NCIS centrally, and the transfer of pensions and security funding from general grant to specific in 2006–07 have reduced General Grant for Lancashire Police Authority compared with 1997). In addition to general grants, Lancashire police will also receive an estimated £33.8 million in specific grants funding for targeted initiatives and capital provision in 2006–07. Lancashire will also gain £0.6 million from the Amending Reports for 2004–05 and 2005–06. The distribution of resources locally is a matter for the Police Authority and the Chief Constable.
