I am pleased that we are due to have a debate on youth violence next Thursday; we will see whether it actually happens. I support Bob Blackman in calling for a debate on burglary. I have seen in my constituency a rise in burglary and aggravated burglary. That is not entirely unconnected with the fact that three police stations have closed in my constituency. We do not have a single police station, so that deterrent has completely disappeared. May we have a debate on this?
