Question

In light of your Deputy Mayor's comments regarding the squandering of tens of millions of pounds of taxpayers money on youth services that in his words 'have done little to curb juvenile offending', do you think all funding should be suspended pending an investigation into what really is effective and then channelling the funds appropriately?

I am confident that we have youth policies that will see robust positive evidence as to their effectiveness.

In order to understand better who is doing what and where, we have created Project Oracle. Project Oracle, in the long-term, will help us understand and share what really works and this applies to all of the Time for Action programmes, which are all signed up to Project Oracle.
