§ The Marquess of Ailesbury
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether the number of prosecutions for vandalism directed against London Underground trains shows a declining trend.
§ Lord Mackay of Ardbrecknish
The number of prosecutions for vandalism has fallen substantially over the last few years. This may in part reflect a significant decline in the overall incidence of vandalism on the Underground. The incidence of graffiti in particular has shown an encouraging fall of around a third over the last two years.
