HC Deb 15 December 2003 vol 415 cc638-9W
Mr. Woodward:

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department which projects have been (a) wholly and (b) partly funded by his Department in St. Helens since 1997; when each project was announced; when it started or was expected to start; what funding was provided by (i) Government and (ii) a third party; what third party provided funding; what the target group of the project was; what the projected outcome of the project was; and what the name of the project was. [141277]

Ms Blears:

The information requested is not available for Home Office funding in St. Helens prior to the introduction of the Crime Reduction Programme in 1999. Furthermore files for projects funded before the introduction of the Safer Communities Initiative in 2002–03 are now in the Government Office's registry, and to retrieve them would incur disproportionate costs.

in (a) 2001 and (b) 2002 under section 111 of the provisions of the Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000, for a third offence of burglary. [141645]
