To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what assessment he has made of the trial Bobby on the Beat scheme in New Earswick. 
§ Ms Blears
The Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust funded the project in New Earswick. I have not carried out any evaluation of the project myself, but am aware that a full evaluation was carried out by the Centre for Criminal Justice Studies at the University of Leeds for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
A full report of the research was published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation on 9 October 2003 and is available, together with summary findings, on the Foundation's website at: http://www.jrf.org.uk/knowledge/findings/socialpolicy/023.asp.
