§ Mr. Edward Davey
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will publish a breakdown of the offences for which(a) anti-social behaviour orders, (b) sex offender orders, (c) parenting orders, (d) child safety orders, (e) reparation orders, (f) drug treatment and testing orders and (g) action plan orders, have been made to date under the provisions of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. 
§ Mr. Charles Clarke
The anti-social behaviour order, sex offender order and child safety order under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 are not criminal penalties. They are preventative in nature and are made on application, in the case of the anti-social behaviour order and sex offender order, to the magistrates' court acting in its civil capacity and, in the case of the child safety order, to the family proceedings court. However, breach of an anti-social behaviour order or sex offender order does constitute an offence.
A parenting order can follow a parental school attendance conviction under the Education Act 1996, as well as offences by children and young people or the making of an anti-social behaviour order, sex offender order or child safety order in respect of them. Piloting began in nine areas in September 1998 and 122 orders had been made there in all proceedings by the end of September 1999.590W
Piloting of the drug treatment and testing order began in three areas in October 1998. 144 orders had been made there by the end of October 1999. The relevant offences included theft, burglary, possession of class A drugs with intent to supply, receiving and handling stolen goods, criminal damage, possession of an offensive weapon, bail offences and driving offences.
Piloting of the reparation order, in five areas, and of the action plan order, in four areas, began in September 1998. 829 reparation orders and 490 action plan orders had been made there by the end of September 1999. Information has not been collected centrally on the offences for which the orders have been imposed. However, the pilots are being evaluated by a team led by Sheffield University, one of whose reports is expected to analyse the relevant offences.
