To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many council and housing association residents have been evicted from their homes as a result of powers under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. [106555]

There are no powers to take possession action against social housing tenants in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. Provisions for possession actions against social tenants are contained in the 1985, 1988 and 1996 Housing Acts. The Office of the Deputy Prime Minister is currently liaising with the Court Service to obtain a breakdown of the data collected on the number of possession actions and evictions.
