HC Deb 11 December 2003 vol 415 c618W
Paul Flynn

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. [142784]

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.
