Drinking Banning Orders

Volume 480: debated on Thursday 16 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many drinking banning orders have been granted under the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006. (226017)

None. Drinking banning orders have not yet been commenced under the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006. The implementation of DBOs has been delayed in the light of recent developments; an improvement in alcohol-related disorder problems and the Government’s Alcohol Strategy which sets out the way forward for tackling alcohol misuse. We will need to monitor the situation and take stock at a later date on whether, in the light of this, there is still a need for DBOs.
