HC Deb 13 February 2004 vol 418 c221W
Mr. Clapham

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what measures he is taking to support communities in the fight against gun crime. [155761]

Caroline Flint

We recognise the importance of supporting local communities to resist gun crime and gun culture. This is why we have provided support for the Disarm Trust to work directly with affected communities, and have allocated 1.2 million of recovered assets money to support community action in the most affected areas. We also hosted a major gun crime community engagement conference in January bringing together local community groups, voluntary organisations and others to help identify what more can be done.
