Anti-social Behaviour Orders

Volume 706: debated on Tuesday 16 December 2008

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many women have been imprisoned for breach of an anti-social behaviour order in each of the past 10 years. [HL125]

Anti-social behaviour orders (ASBOs) became available from April 1999. The latest ASBO breach data are only available for ASBOs issued between 1 June 2000 and 31 December 2006. During that period, 303 women were proven in court to have breached their ASBO on at least one occasion and were given a custodial sentence on the occasion of the severest penalty.
