27. Mr. Alan W. Williams
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has had from Crime Concern over the establishment of a new national crime prevention board; and what representations he has made.
§ Mr. Jack
The chairman of Crime Concern wrote to me last month welcoming the setting up of a National Board for Crime Prevention and seeking discussions on the relationship between it and the board. I have invited Crime Concern to come and discuss these matters with me once separate discussions between its representatives and senior officials on the ways in which they can contribute to the new developments on crime prevention have been completed. I have no doubt that Crime Concern will have a valuable contribution to make in assisting the work of the board.
