HC Deb 12 March 1984 vol 56 c5W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what estimate he has made of the increase in net expenditure by local authorities required to implement the suggestions proposed in his Department's circular 8/1984 on crime prevention.

Mr. Hurd

As the joint departmental circular states, its recommendations do not call for a net increase in expenditure. They concern a redirection of effort or existing resources.
