PRIME MINISTER – SAFE STREETS – 23 January 2008

[Stephen Crabb: ... Will the Prime Minister please tell us what exactly is happening on Britain's streets when the Home Secretary needs an armed police escort to go and buy a kebab? [Laughter] ]

Dr Julian Lewis: Skewered!

[The Prime Minister: I want everyone in Britain to be, and feel, safe on our streets. Crime is down 32 per cent. since 1997, and violent crime is down 31 per cent. There are more police than ever in our country, and we will do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our citizens.]
