HC Deb 07 November 1991 vol 198 c216W
9. Mr. Macdonald

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what additional funding he intends to make available to the probation service and voluntary organisations for alternatives to custody projects for young people convicted of burglary and driving away a motor vehicle.

Mr. John Patten

The increase in probation service expenditure announced yesterday will enable the service to strengthen its work with these offenders. So too will the extra £1 million a year for the voluntary sector projects.
