HC Deb 20 March 1985 vol 75 cc494-5W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department which of his policies during the last year have proved successful in tackling crime in the north-west of England.

Mr. Giles Shaw

There are many aspects of Home Office policies which are relevant to the prevention of crime and the detection and punishment of offenders. It would be invidious to single out any one in any individual area of the country.
