HC Deb 05 December 1989 vol 163 c176W
Mr. Sumberg

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many cities in the north west of England are covered by his Department's safer cities initiative; and what plans he has to extend the programme.

Mr. John Patten

Of the 16 projects established in the first two years of the safer cities programme, three are located in the north-west of England—at Rochdale, Salford and Wirral. We plan to set up four more projects in the financial year 1990–91, but the areas have not yet been selected.
