§ 16. Mr. Fabricant
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on the initiatives he is taking to reduce city centre crime. 
§ Mr. Maclean
Our strategy for tackling crime is a four-pronged approach:
- (1) ensuring that everything possible is done to prevent crime;
- (2) that the police have the powers and resources they need to catch criminals;
- (3) that the innocent are acquitted and the guilty convicted; and
- (4) that criminals are properly punished.
