§ 7. Mr. Savidge
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what steps are being taken to tackle organised crime in Northern Ireland. 
§ 14. Mr. Ben Chapman
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland if he will make a statement on measures to combat organised crime in Northern Ireland. 
§ Mr. Pearson
The Organised Crime Task Force continues to set the strategic direction for a multi agency approach to tackling organised crime in Northern Ireland. The 4th annual Threat Assessment and Strategy which was published by the Task Force on 11 May describes in detail both the extent of the problem, the successes that the law enforcement agencies have had against organised criminals, and the objectives of the Task Force.
I pay tribute to the PSNI, HM Customs and Excise and the Assets Recovery Agency for their on-going commitment and effectiveness.
