HC Deb 16 December 2002 vol 396 c632W
Margaret Moran

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what measures he intends to take to ban sales of aerosol spray paint to children across the UK. [86424]

Mr. Denham

The Government take the problem of graffiti very seriously and are examining ways in which it they can reduce the problem. The London Local Authorities Bill, which is currently before Parliament, would clamp down on the sale of spray paints to under 18 year olds within the London area. We are looking carefully at whether we should adopt this approach nationally as part of the Anti-Social Behaviour Bill.
