HC Deb 23 January 1991 vol 184 c189W
Mr. Bowis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many elderly people have so far benefited from the provision of home security and alarm systems under the safer cities and other projects(a) in London and (b) in the London borough of Wandsworth.

Mr. John Patten

Four safer cities projects are based in London: at Islington, Lewisham, Tower Hamlets and Wandsworth. Twenty-two safer cities grants, worth £209,000, have been approved for agencies and organisations in those areas so that they can provide better home security or alarm systems to elderly people. The estimated number of beneficiaries is 3,500 elderly people, including 400 in the London borough of Wandsworth.
