Antisocial Behaviour: Prosecutions

Volume 460: debated on Thursday 24 May 2007

24. To ask the Solicitor-General what assessment he has made of the conduct of recent prosecutions by the Crown Prosecution Service for breaches of criminal antisocial behaviour orders; and if he will make a statement. (138951)

Since 2004, the Crown Prosecution Service has had a team of specialist prosecutors providing guidance and training to all prosecutors in the effective application of antisocial behaviour legislation. This has ensured a consistent approach to the prosecution of antisocial behaviour across all areas, including breaches of those orders granted following conviction, and following application by a relevant authority.
