Antisocial Behaviour Orders: York

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 16 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many antisocial behaviour orders have been issued by courts in York since the introduction of such orders; and how many people who were issued with such orders were proceeded against for breaching them. (322094)

Antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) became available from 1 April 1999. Between 1 April 1999 and 31 December 2007 (latest currently available) a total of 147 ASBOs were issued at all courts in the North Yorkshire Criminal Justice System (CJS) area.

Data collected centrally by the Ministry of Justice on ASBO breaches held on the Court Proceedings Database only count those occasions where the breach was proven in court to have occurred and are available for ASBOs issued from 1 June 2000. The number of ASBOs issued at all courts in the North Yorkshire CJS area subsequently proven in court to have been breached at least once between 1 June 2000 and 31 December 2007 (latest currently available) is 81.

Data on ASBOs issued and breached collected centrally by the Ministry of Justice are not compiled below Criminal Justice System (CJS) area level.
