That is their decision. That is what they were elected in Northumbria to decide. There seems to be a lot of good news in Northumbria. Let me see, the hon. Gentleman is one of the best parts of the whole country—no wonder he did not intervene earlier.

People in Northumbria are safer now than they were before. They are less likely to be victims of crime, and I very much welcome that.
