NotesNews : The beleagured Home Secretary, Michael Howard will enjoy no respite this week as crime figures, the launch of neighbourhood watch patrols and an on going dispute over police funding continue to beset him. Mr Howard began the attempt to shed his"serial bungler" reputation by insisting that despite the crisis in the prisons over the last fortnight he will have "a lot of good news to report" to the Conservative party conference in his speech on October 13. When he speaks today at a Prince's Trust conference on young people and crime Mr Howard will be told in no uncertain terms that crime prevention pays higher dividends than his "get tough" policy of imprisoning more persistent young offenders. On Tuesday the annual crime figures are expected to show a 6% fall in recorded crime, the first since 1987. However the olice are unlikely to credit the Home Secretary with thhis acheivement, and the 5.3 million offences recorded in 1993 were still nearly 2 million more than at the time of the 1987 General Election.
