HC Deb 24 November 1999 vol 339 cc119-20W
Jackie Ballard

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he will assess the responses to the consultation on the paper, Compensation for Victims of Violent Crime. [98678]

Mr. Charles Clarke

We have completed a preliminary analysis of the responses to the consultation exercise, but need to undertake further work before we will be in a position to say how we plan to take matters forward. We hope to be able to announce our intentions fairly early in the new year.
