Parenting Orders

Volume 458: debated on Thursday 15 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many parenting orders arising from criminal conduct or anti-social behaviour were issued in each of the last five years, broken down by local authority area; how many were breached; how many prosecutions were mounted against those breaching such orders; how many such prosecutions were successful; and if he will make a statement. (126145)

A table showing parenting orders arising from criminal conduct or antisocial behaviour as reported by the Youth Justice Board using figures recorded by youth offending teams since parenting orders were commenced across England and Wales, follows. These figures are by youth offending team area; they are not recorded by local authority area.

Youth offending teams do not record numbers breached, prosecutions or convictions for breach. The figures reported to the Home Office on breaches of parenting orders have not been given because their accuracy cannot be guaranteed. Quality checks have shown that breach data are unsuitable for publication.

The Home Office has started a programme of work looking at the quality of existing data on court sentencing and how it might be improved.

All parenting orders imposed (crime and ASB)
