A charity which helps victims of crime says millions of pounds will be wasted if the government hands control of budgets to new police and crime commissioners (PCCs). The Justice Secretary wants to change the way services work to create a "faster system". But Victim Support claims:
- £21 million will be wasted on commissioning
- Cost of PCCs commissioning services would account for 18% of funding
- That's almost double the Government's own estimate of 10%
- Intensive support lost for 25,000 victims of domestic violence
