Acceptable Behaviour Contracts

Volume 455: debated on Friday 26 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many acceptable behaviour contracts were issued in (a) England, (b) the West Midlands and (c) West Bromwich East in the most recent year for which figures are available. (111857)

Data on numbers of acceptable behaviour contracts (ABCs) are not collected by the Home Office as they are voluntary agreements and therefore not suitable for central data collection.

However, three annual surveys carried out by the Home Office of the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs) indicated that a total of 18,349 ABCs were made in England and Wales between October 2003 and September 2006.
