I welcome the Minister to his new job. Will he confirm that in the matter of non-violent crime England and Wales are somewhere near the top of the international league? For example, does he know that there is a burglary every 34 seconds and an act of theft or of handling stolen goods every 16 seconds? What is he going to do about that?
