With your permission Mr Speaker, I would like to group this question with question 23.

Diverting young people away from crime is at the heart of the Serious Violence Strategy.

I have just awarded £17.7m to support 29 projects working with young people through the Early Intervention Youth Fund, and I am setting up a new £200m Youth Endowment Fund to provide long term support to stop children getting involved in crime and violence.

Does this answer the above question?
