HC Deb 10 June 2002 vol 386 c793W
15. Dr. Julian Lewis

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what steps he is taking to prevent antisocial behaviour. [57061]

Mr. Bob Ainsworth

Our strategy to prevent antisocial behaviour includes the introduction of Neighbourhood and Street Wardens, the Closed Circuit Television initiative and a range of sentences for juvenile offenders to prevent further offending. Measures in the Police Reform Bill will improve the effectiveness of Anti-Social Behaviour-Orders and increase the extended police family to deter people from committing antisocial acts.

Tackling antisocial behaviour is a priority for the Government—it is blighting the lives of too many people.
