Policy Announcements, Friday 10 August


  • The government has unveiled new proposals to use innovative design to tackle crime. Four UK designers will join the Design and Technology Alliance and work with the Home Office to make products harder to steal. Home Office minister Vernon Coaker called on businesses to ensure their products did not provide opportunities for thieves. The scheme forms part of the government's anti-crime strategy announced by home secretary Jacqui Smith last month.
