Antisocial Behaviour: Fixed Penalties

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 26 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what recent estimate he has made of the re-offending rate of recipients of penalty notices for disorder in the latest period for which figures are available. (195648)

Re-offending rates for recipients of penalty notices for disorder are not currently measured. Work is currently under way to assess the feasibility of reporting re-offending rates for recipients of penalty notices for disorder. The feasibility study is due to be complete in the summer.

Adult re-offending includes re-offending for offenders discharged from custody or commencing community sentences, while juvenile re-offending also includes offenders who received reprimands, final warnings and other court convictions.
