§ 27. Mr. Wilkinson
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if she will make a statement on her policy to reduce the incidence of crimes of violence against the person perpetrated by members of paramilitary groups in Northern Ireland. 
§ Mr. Ingram
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State is on record as condemning all acts of violence, including those against the person perpetrated by members of paramilitary organisations. She has met with representatives of political parties and impressed on them the importance of bringing their influence to bear on paramilitary groups to stop such practices.
