Would you buy a Nottingham investment bond?

Graham Allen, the Notingham North MP asked a strange question in parliament.

“the number of crimes in Nottingham over the past three years has fallen by 26,000, saving the taxpayer £52 million.

Will my hon. Friends have a word with their Treasury colleagues and ask whether we can incentivise cities such as Nottingham and enable them to borrow against that saving, and perhaps create a Nottingham investment bond, to push crime down further and give people some tangible reward when they do a good job of reducing crime?”

This sounds like the kind of tangled investment opportunities Enron created before it went belly up. However this is very very unlikely to happen.
