Antisocial Behaviour Orders

Volume 458: debated on Monday 26 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what the re-offending rate is for individuals with an anti-social behaviour order in (a) Dewsbury constituency and (b) England and Wales. (121083)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many and what percentage of individuals made subject to an anti-social behaviour order have since been convicted of a criminal offence. (121854)

ASBOs are civil orders and not an offender management tool so the information is not collected centrally.

Numbers of ASBOs proved in court to have been breached are monitored centrally and these numbers together with breach rates are shown in the following table.

Note:

Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts and police forces. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
