To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many injunctions have been (a) sought and (b) obtained under sections 26 and 27 of the Police and Justice Act 2006. (167553)

The Police and Justice Act 2006 amended measures which have been available since summer 2004. My Department has requested that local authorities provide data on the number of antisocial behaviour injunctions (ASBIs) they have obtained from 2006-07. Those data are not yet available.

The Housing Corporation has collected data from registered social landlords (RSLs) on the use of antisocial behaviour injunctions since 2005-06, in which 758 are reported as having been granted.
