asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) if he will set out the number of community service orders made by each court in Inner London during each of the last four years, indicating the number of persons covered each year;(2) how many hours were worked under community service orders imposed by who find their Sundays disturbed; and if he will issue a circular to local authorities drawing to their attention the need to enforce the law in this area.

I would refer my hon. Friend to what I said about enforcement of the Shops Act in the Adjournment debate on 28th April. I believe that local authorities are aware of their duty to enforce the Acts, and I see no need to issue a circular.
