§ Brian Cotter
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what recent assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the victim support scheme in Weston-Super-Mare. 
§ Mr. Keith Bradley
The Home Office does not directly inspect individual victim support schemes. Under the terms of the annual Home Office grant to victim support, each local scheme is normally reviewed by Victim Support's National Office on a three-year cycle. The last such review of the Weston-Super-Mare scheme was undertaken in January 2000.
