HC Deb 26 July 1979 vol 971 c382W
31. Mr. Marlow

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department when he intends to bring forward further measures to counter vandalism.

Mr. Whitelaw

I have already taken steps to strengthen the police, and will, as soon as practicable, bring forward proposals for legislation to strengthen the powers of the courts in England and Wales in relation to young offenders and juveniles. I shall continue to look for the wholehearted support of the public in the fight against vandalism.
