(1) if he will list the (a) local authorities which have successfully applied for antisocial behaviour orders, (b) local authorities which have only unsuccessfully applied for antisocial behaviour orders and (c) local authorities which have not applied for any antisocial behaviour orders; and if he will identify under what political control each authority operates;
(2) how many applications for antisocial behaviour orders have been made by (a) local authorities and (b) the police; and how those applications were disposed of and with what outcomes.
There is known to have been some under-recording of anti-social behaviour orders (ASBOs) in a few police force areas. With the co-operation of Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) we are therefore undertaking a one-off reconciliation exercise to establish any differences, between the numbers of ASBOs known to the police and the data from court returns.
The data should be available in November and I will write to my hon. Friend.
