HC Deb 15 December 1998 vol 322 c467W
Mrs. Heal

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what initiatives his Department are developing to reduce car crime. [63403]

Mr. Boateng

On 29 September my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister announced a national target of a 30 per cent. reduction in vehicle crime over the next five years. To achieve this, we have recently established a ministerial task force—the Vehicle Crime Reduction Action Team—which will use as a starting point, a 14 point action plan developed jointly by the former Vehicle Crime Prevention Group and the Association of Chief Police Officers.
