More on their full record
What recent steps she has taken to reduce antisocial behaviour.
I am grateful to the Minister for that answer, but he knows that antisocial behaviour remains a major concern. Constituents stress to me that agencies need to work together more quickly, and especially more effectively, to tackle it. What more can the Minister do to make that happen?
To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills what progress he has made on rebalancing the economy across regions and sectors.
