Dr. Iddon: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how the Government plan to divide the allocation of funding of £28 million to tackle fraud between the National Fraud Strategic Authority and the National Fraud Reporting Centre. 
Mr. Coaker: The comprehensive spending review (CSR) allocated over £28 million in new money for 2008 to 2011 for the implementation of the Fraud review recommendations to establish a National Fraud Strategic Authority (including a National Fraud Loss Measurement Unit), a National Fraud Reporting Centre and a National Lead Force for fraud. Specific funding earmarked for each of these remains confidential under the terms of HM Treasury's settlement letter and due to the commercially sensitive nature of the current development work.
Dr. Iddon: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if she will ensure that those activities identified as high risk by the National Fraud Strategic Authority receive additional police resources to tackle the risk of insurance fraud. 
Mr. Coaker: The Government recently announced additional funding of over £28 million to implement the recommendations of the Fraud review. This includes funding to establish a national lead force for fraud which will provide a centre of expertise and resources to support fraud investigations. This is in addition to the £9.2 billion which chief officers will allocate according to national and local priorities. The police, along with other stakeholders, will be involved in developing the national fraud strategy, including the identification of high risk activities and the development of investigative capacity against fraud.
