HC Deb 16 December 2003 vol 415 c862W
Mr. Boris Johnson

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will guarantee the grant for Crimestoppers for the next four years. [142531]

Ms Blears

The Government believes that Crimestoppers is a highly effective organisation that gathers vital intelligence for the Police and other law enforcement agencies. As laid out in the 1998 Compact on relations with the Voluntary and Community Sector, the Government recognises that continuity of funding is important to voluntary organisations and takes this into account where possible.
