Question

Are you concerned at the recent suggestion from the Ministry of Justice that allocations of Victims' Funding should be based on a population basis, rather than linked to crime or need. Do you recognise that this will have a disastrous impact on the level of service and support on offer in London if these proposals remain unchanged?

Yes, I think I can be quite succinct on this, Joanne.  Yeah, I think I basically agree with your analysis.  I think that it is ludicrous to have a Victims’ Funding Allocation per head of population.  It should be per victim, and so we will be lobbying for that.
