Drinking Banning Orders

Volume 486: debated on Thursday 15 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans she has to introduce drinking banning orders. (246714)

The Government intend to commence the legislation relating to Drinking Banning Orders (DBOs) on application. Officials will shortly begin this process by consulting the judiciary on the draft guidance for this power, and we expect that DBOs would become available to frontline practitioners from summer 2009.
