HC Deb 12 March 1984 vol 56 c29W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what estimate he has made of the increase in net expenditure by local authorities required to implement the proposals contained in his circular 1/1984 concerning the prevention of crime.

Mr. Hurd

I have been asked to reply.

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.
