    Deliberate Grass Fires
    ​Members will be aware that we have had perennial problems with deliberately-set grass fires in parts of Wales and will recall the severe problems we had a year ago.  In April last year the First Minister held a summit on these issues, which I attended along with the Ministers for Natural Resources and Education and Skills. The summit brought together key organisations to formulate a co-ordinated programme of action to address the issue of grass fires in the short, medium and long-term, based on education, land management and deterrence with commitments from the Police, Fire and Rescue, Natural Resources Wales, Local Authorities and the Welsh Government. We and our partners have spent the past year developing actions to combat grass fire outbreaks and sharpen the emergency response to them.
