§ Mr. Francois
To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what recent discussions he has had with the Home Secretary about tackling violent crime in Wales. 
§ Mr. Touhig
My right hon. Friend meets regularly with the Home Secretary to discuss a range of issues affecting Wales.
The Government are committed to increasing the reporting and recording of violent crime. Violent crime represents a relatively small proportion of crime, but it is recognised that it includes those crimes that cause people most concern.
We have put in place a comprehensive package of measures to combat violent crime which is set out in "Fighting Violent Crime Together", published earlier this year.
