Government isn't taking international metal theft seriously

A subject I have raised on many occasions and I have recently received this reply from the Treasury. I am concerned that the Treasury are keen to end funding for the national metal theft task force.

The NMTTF has been a huge success seeing; increased cooperation, data sharing and best practice; it has been highly successful in targeting the major criminals who manage to avoid the use of scrap metal yards through the export market.
